How to add watermark to image on upload in laravel 5.8

I want to add watermark when a user uploads an image on the system. My current code works fine but I need it to work on upload. What do I add to my code?

My WatermarkController file


namespace AppHttpControllers;

use IlluminateHttpRequest;
use Image;

class WaterMarkController extends Controller
public function imageWatermark()
$img = Image::make(public_path('images/background.png'));

/* insert watermark at bottom-right corner with 10px offset */
$img->insert(public_path('images/watermark.png'), 'bottom-right', 10, 10);


$type = 'png';
$new_image = 'data:image/' . $type . ';base64,' . base64_encode($img);

return view('show_watermark', compact('new_image'));

public function textWatermark()
$img = Image::make(public_path('images/background.jpg'));

$img->text('MyNotePaper', 710, 370, function ($font) {


$type = 'png';
$new_image = 'data:image/' . $type . ';base64,' . base64_encode($img);

return view('show_watermark', compact('new_image'));


web.php file

Route::get('watermark-image', '[email protected]');
Route::get('watermark-text', '[email protected]');

Like I said my current code works fine but I need it to work dynamically when a user uploads an image to the system, with this code you would have to configure the watermark.png and the backgroud.jpg to the same directory then access the route watermark-image. please help me on this I am very new to Laravel. Thanks
