        if ($image = $request->file('image')) {
            foreach ($image as $files) {
            $destinationPath = 'public/image/'; // upload path
            $profileImage = date('YmdHis') . "." . $files->getClientOriginalExtension();
            $files->move($destinationPath, $profileImage);
            $insert[]['image'] = "$profileImage";
        $check = Image::insert($insert);
        return Redirect::to("image")->withSuccess('Great! Image has been successfully uploaded.');

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
