How to create custom captcha image in Laravel

To create a custom Captcha image in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

Step 1 - Install the intervention/image package using Composer. This package provides a simple way to create and manipulate images in Laravel.

composer require intervention/image


Step 2 - Generate a Captcha code using PHP's rand() function.

$captcha = rand(1000, 9999);


Step 3 - Store the Captcha code in the session.

session()->put('captcha', $captcha);


Step 4 - Use the Intervention\Image\Facades\Image class to create a new image, and add the Captcha code as text to the image.

$image = Image::canvas(120, 40, '#ccc');
$image->text($captcha, 60, 20, function($font) {


Step 5 - Return the image as a response with the correct content type.

return response($image->encode('png'))
        ->header('Content-Type', 'image/png');


Step 6 - Add a route to your web.php file to handle requests for the Captcha image.

Route::get('/captcha', function () {
    // code to generate and return the Captcha image


Step 7 - Finally, add an HTML form to your view that includes the Captcha image and a field for the user to enter the code.

    <img src="/captcha" alt="Captcha Image">
    <input type="text" name="captcha">


Note: You may want to add additional security measures to your Captcha implementation, such as rate limiting or IP blocking for repeated incorrect attempts.
