Laravel Image Resize with Intervention [v9 Simple How To Example]

Today we’ll perform a Laravel image resize using Intervention’s Image package. It makes image resizing, cropping, and saving easy.

Install Via Composer

# Laravel v9 w/Sail
./vendor/bin/sail composer require intervention/image

Integrate with Laravel

Copy over the config file

./vendor/bin/sail artisan vendor:publish --provider="Intervention\Image\ImageServiceProviderLaravelRecent"

Edit The “config/app.php” File

Add this to your "providers" array.


Add this to the “$aliases” array.

'Image' => Intervention\Image\Facades\Image::class

Begin Using

In the PHP class file (model, controller, etc.) of your choice, put this in the “use” section at the top.

use Intervention\Image\Facades\Image

Start resizing images

// use an image from your server or on the web.
$image_location = "";
$image_location = "/var/www/laravel/storage/public/images/mountain.jpg";

// create an image instance 
$img = Image::make($image_url);

// set your save folder
$folder_path = Storage::path("public/images/");

// save as a backup so we can resuse this as we resize

$img->resize("500", "500", function ($constraint) {
    ->save($folder_path . "mountain_large", 70, "jpg");

// reset to the backup

$img->resize("250", "250", function ($constraint) {
    ->save($folder_path . "mountain_medium", 70, "jpg");

// reset to the backup

$img->resize("125", "125", function ($constraint) {
    ->save($folder_path . "mountain_small", 70, "jpg");
