Ionic Native File applicationDirectory with Live Deploy

I am using the File plugin to get an image path:

The only problem is, when deploying a Live Deploy (web build) update that updates the image, it still references the original image that was in the app binary.

Is there a way to get the full file path for an image that will always point to the latest update?

I am using this file path in the Photo Viewer plugin, which requires an absolute filepath to display the images.

I have the same issue at the moment. Did you find a solution to this by any chance?
