In this article, I am going to show you how to create a custom image upload and preview design. Image Preview is a great system where you can check before uploading an image whether the image is eligible for upload.
HTML has many types of input functions, one of which is text, passwords, emails, etc. that we always use. There is also another type of input known as the file input(<input type=” file”>). Here you can use any type of file for input.
I have already made this design using Jquery. You can upload multiple files or images using input. I have already written an article showing how to upload and preview multiple images using JQuery. Below I have given a live demo of this design to learn how this image preview works.

Hopefully, the demo above has helped you to know how this design works. As you can see there is a small box on a web page. There is a button, when you click on that button, your file manager will open.
From there you will select any one image then that image can be seen here as a preview in a beautiful way. In the same way, you will see another image in this preview box by clicking that button again.
Now is the time to fully understand how it is made. Before starting the tutorial, let me tell you some important points. First I designed the web page using some CSS. Then I created a box on the webpage. I made a small button using the input in that box.
Step 1: Design the webpage with CSS
First I designed the web page using CSS code. Here we have set the background color of the web page as blue and the height as 100vh.
Step 2: Create the basic structure of the image preview
Now I have made a small box on the web page using some basic HTML and CSS. As you can see above, image previews and buttons are all in this box.
The width of the box is 350 px and the background color is white. I have used some box shadows here which have made it brighter and more attractive.
Step 3: Create a place to preview the image
Step 4: Create input boxes and buttons
Now I have created an input box using file input and created a button there. I used the level of input to make this button. Later, using CSS, I gave that level the shape of a button. Button height 45 px and width 45%.
After using js, image preview and upload will be fully effective. Then when you click on the upload button, you will see a preview of any image you select from your file.
Hopefully from the tutorial above you have learned how to make an image upload with preview. I have already created a system of multiple image previews using JQuery.
