I want to add a feedback form in frontend, with an image upload field, How to save form data and images in database?


First, you should be add input type file at form and also add enctype='multipart/form-data' and

    <!-- -->
    <div class="field image">
        <label class="label" for="image"><span><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Image') ?></span></label>
        <div class="control">
            <input name="image" id="image" title="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('image') ?>"   type="file" />

At controller, you need upload image via


Add below class in __construct functions and execute function of controller:

 namespace [Namespace];

use  Magento\Framework\App\Filesystem\DirectoryList;
class [MyClass]

 protected $uploaderFactory;
 protected $adapterFactory;
 protected $filesystem;

    public function  __construct(
            \Magento\MediaStorage\Model\File\UploaderFactory $uploaderFactory,
            \Magento\Framework\Image\AdapterFactory $adapterFactory,
            \Magento\Framework\Filesystem $filesystem
        $this->uploaderFactory = $uploaderFactory;
        $this->adapterFactory = $adapterFactory;
        $this->filesystem = $filesystem;
     public function execute()
            $uploaderFactory = $this->uploaderFactory->create(['fileId' => 'image']);
            $uploaderFactory->setAllowedExtensions(['jpg', 'jpeg', 'gif', 'png']);
            $imageAdapter = $this->adapterFactory->create();
            /* start of validated image */
            $mediaDirectory = $this->filesystem->getDirectoryRead(DirectoryList::MEDIA);
            $destinationPath = $mediaDirectory->getAbsolutePath('custom_image');
            $result = $uploaderFactory->save($destinationPath);
            if (!$result) {
                throw new LocalizedException(
                    __('File cannot be saved to path: $1', $destinationPath)
            /* you need yo save image 
                 $result['file'] at datbaseQQ 
            $imagepath = $result['file'];
        } catch (\Exception $e) {

I just have a suggestion for you. We can follow the same logic of product file option. We can see how Magento works with the file.

Here is a sample template:


And take a look at

public function processFileQueue() { ..... }

I think it's a good example for uploading image on frontend.
