Step 1: Download Codeigniter Project

In this step, we will download the latest version of Codeigniter 4, Go to this link Download Codeigniter 4 fresh new setup and unzip the setup in your local system. And change the download folder name “your folder name”.

Step 2: Basic Configurations

Next, we will set some basic configuration on the app/config/app.php file, so let’s go to application/config/config.php and open this file on the text editor.

public $baseURL = 'http://localhost:8080';


public $baseURL = 'http://localhost/demo/';
Step 3: Create Database With Table

In this step, we need to create a database. can use the below SQL query for creating a crop_images table in your database.

CREATE TABLE crop_images (
    id int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT COMMENT 'Primary Key',
    title varchar(100) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Title',
    created_at varchar(20) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Created date',
    PRIMARY KEY (id)
Step 4: Setup Database Credentials

In this step, we need to connect our project to the database. we need to go app/Config/Database.php and open the database.php. We need to set up database credentials in this file like below.

public $default = [
    'DSN'      => '',
    'hostname' => 'localhost',
    'username' => 'root',
    'password' => '',
    'database' => 'demo',
    'DBDriver' => 'MySQLi',
    'DBPrefix' => '',
    'pConnect' => false,
    'DBDebug'  => (ENVIRONMENT !== 'production'),
    'cacheOn'  => false,
    'cacheDir' => '',
    'charset'  => 'utf8',
    'DBCollat' => 'utf8_general_ci',
    'swapPre'  => '',
    'encrypt'  => false,
    'compress' => false,
    'strictOn' => false,
    'failover' => [],
    'port'     => 3306,
Step 5: Create Controller

Now Go to app/Controllers and create a controller name CropImageUpload.php. In this controller, we will create some method/function:

<?php namespace App\Controllers;
use CodeIgniter\Controller;
class CropImageUpload extends Controller
    public function index()
         return view('crop-image-upload-form');
    public function store()
           helper(['form', 'url']);
           $db    = \Config\Database::connect();
         $builder = $db->table('crop_images');
         $data = $_POST["image"];
         $image_array_1 = explode(";", $data);
         $image_array_2 = explode(",", $image_array_1[1]);
         $data = base64_decode($image_array_2[1]);
         $imageName = time() . '.png';
         file_put_contents($imageName, $data);
         $image_file = addslashes(file_get_contents($imageName));
         $save = $builder->insert(['title' =>  $image_file]);
         $response = [
          'success' => true,
          'data' => $save,
          'msg' => "Crop Image has been uploaded successfully in codeigniter"
       return $this->response->setJSON($response);
Step 6: Create Views

Now we need to create crop-image-upload-form.php, go to application/views/ folder, and create crop-image-upload-form.php file. and update the following HTML into your files:

      <title>jQuery Croppie Image Upload Crop Codeigniter 4 PHP Coding Stuff</title>
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
      <script src=""></script
      <script src=""></script>
      <script src=""></script>
      <script src=""></script>
      <script src=""></script>
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
      <div class="container mt-5">
         <div class="card">
            <div class="card-header">

            <div class="card-body">

<div id="imageModel" class="modal fade bd-example-modal-lg" role="dialog">

            <h4 class="modal-title">Crop &amp; Resize Upload Image in PHP with Ajax</h4>
         <div class="modal-body">
            <div class="row">
               <div class="col-md-8 text-center">
                  <div id="image_demo" style="width:350px; margin-top:30px"></div>
               <div class="col-md-4" style="padding-top:30px;">
                  <br />
                  <br />
                  <button class="btn btn-success crop_image">Save</button>
         <div class="modal-footer">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Close</button>
   $(document).ready(function() {
    $image_crop = $('#image_demo').croppie({
        enableExif: true,
        viewport: {
            width: 200,
            height: 200,
            type: 'square' //circle
        boundary: {
            width: 300,
            height: 300
    $('#before_crop_image').on('change', function() {
        var reader = new FileReader();
        reader.onload = function(event) {
            $image_crop.croppie('bind', {
            }).then(function() {
                console.log('jQuery bind complete');
    $('.crop_image').click(function(event) {
        $image_crop.croppie('result', {
            type: 'canvas',
            size: 'viewport'
        }).then(function(response) {
                url: "<?php echo base_url(); ?>public/index.php/CropImageUpload/store",
                type: 'POST',
                data: {
                    "image": response
                success: function(data) {
                    alert('Crop image has been uploaded');
