Vue / Laravel: How to validate files uploaded from the frontend?

I have an image uploader on my Vue app that takes multiple files. I want to ensure they are images and of a certain size and if not, obviously don’t upload the files and have the frontend display the error. Right now, the route it hits in the controller loos like this:

   public function uploadAssets(UploadAssetsFormRequest $request)
if ($request->hasFile('file')) {
$files = $request->file('file');
$stack = [];
foreach ($files as $file) {
$fileName = Storage::put('/check/', file_get_contents($file->getRealPath()), ['visibility' => 'public']);
array_push($stack, $fileName);
return response()->json($stack);

My Form Request is below and has the validation but I don’t know how to apply that in the controller.



namespace AppHttpRequestsAdmin;

use IlluminateFoundationHttpFormRequest;

class UploadAssetsFormRequest extends FormRequest

public function authorize()
return true;

public function rules()
return [
'files.*' => 'required|image|max:1000',

public function messages()
return [
'files.*.max' => 'The image is too large',
'files.*.image' => 'Only image files are allowed.',
