You might be creating a script in Laravel, that can help you to get the storage path of a file/image. Which you have already stored in the ‘storage/app/images‘ directory (For example). And, you want to get the file from the storage path to process further.
Laravel has already created a plenty of helper methods, by using them you can get absolute/relative paths easily.
To get the absolute of the image, you can use following helper method.
$file_path = storage_path('app/images/myimage.png');
When you execute above code, you will get the fully qualified path to myimage.png file.
