C# code in Controller to save image file in folders and it's path in database

  [HttpPost]
        public ActionResult ImageUpload()
        {
            if (Request.Files.Count > 0)
            {
                try
                {
                    //  Get all files from Request object  
                    HttpFileCollectionBase files = Request.Files;
                    var savedurl = "";
                    for (int i = 0; i < files.Count; i++)
                    {
     //use this if you have multiple files, otherwise leave it commented

                        //string filename = Path.GetFileName(Request.Files[i].FileName);  

                        HttpPostedFileBase file = files[i];
                        string fname;

                        // Checking for Internet Explorer  
                        if (Request.Browser.Browser.ToUpper() == "IE" || Request.Browser.Browser.ToUpper() == "INTERNETEXPLORER")
                        {
                            string[] testfiles = file.FileName.Split(new char[] { '\\' });
                            fname = testfiles[testfiles.Length - 1];
                        }
                        else
                        {
                            fname = file.FileName;
                        }
                        string subPath = "~/Images/Upload/" + DateTime.Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy")+"/"; // your code goes here

                        bool exists = System.IO.Directory.Exists(Server.MapPath("~/Images/Upload/"+DateTime.Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy")+"/"));

                        if (!exists)
                        { System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(Server.MapPath("~/Images/Upload/" + DateTime.Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy") + "/")); }
                        // Get the complete folder path and store the file inside it.  
                        fname = Path.Combine(Server.MapPath("~/Images/Upload/" + DateTime.Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy")+"/"), fname);
                        savedurl = "/Images/Upload/" + DateTime.Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy")+"/" + file.FileName;
                        file.SaveAs(fname);
                        using(var context= new DatabaseConnection())
                        {
                        //Save savedurl in database
                        }
                    }
                    // Returns message that successfully uploaded  
                    return Json(new { MSG="File Uploaded Successfully!" , SAvedUrl= savedurl },JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    return Json("Error occurred. Error details: " + ex.Message);
                }
            }
            else
            {
                return Json("No files selected.");
            }
        }

HTML

<input name="image" type="file" id="upload" accept="image/*" />

jQuery:

$('#upload').on('change', function () {
                           //Change this line for multiple image upload
                            var file = this.files[0];
                            var files = this.files;
                            
                            // Create FormData object  
                            var fileData = new FormData();

                            // Looping over all files and add it to FormData object  
                            for (var i = 0; i < files.length; i++) {
                                fileData.append(files[i].name, files[i]);
                            }

                           
                            $.ajax({
                                url: '/Controller/ImageUpload',
                                type: "POST",
                                contentType: false, // Not to set any content header  
                                processData: false, // Not to process data  
                                data: fileData,
                                success: function (result) {
                                    alert( result.SavedUrl);
                                   
                                 
                                },
                                error: function (err) {
                                    // alert(err.statusText);
                                   
                                }
                            });
                           
                           
                        });

The above code can handle multiple file uploads, but you would have to change the code accordingly, for now, it will upload single image file only.
