Ionic - Setting an image source as FILE_URI produces: Not allowed to load local resource error


I'm using Android at the moment and developing my app with Ionic. When a user takes a photo, I'm having it append to an ion-slide in a ion-slides element. However, I keep getting "Not allowed to load local resource error." All the permissions are set (The image gets saved)


<ion-slide *ngFor="let looImage of looImages"> <img src="{{ looImage }}" imageViewer ion-long-press (onPressing)="showImageOptions()"/> </ion-slide>


options: CameraOptions = { correctOrientation: true, quality: 50, destinationType: this.camera.DestinationType.FILE_URI, encodingType: this.camera.EncodingType.JPEG, mediaType: this.camera.MediaType.PICTURE }; capturePhoto() { this.camera.getPicture(this.options).then((imageData) => { this.looImages.push(imageData); console.log(this.looImages.length); }, (err) => { }); }

Full error:

Not allowed to load local resource: file:///storage/emulated/0/Android/data/io.ionic.starter/cache/1538074314258.jpg


It's security layer in mobile which denies to load the image from web view. You can use 'DATA_URL' which will return base64 content. you can attach to src property by appending content type and applying DomSanitizer service.

If you still want to use FILE_URI, using ionic-native/file plugin <a href="https://ionicframework.com/docs/native/file/" rel="nofollow">https://ionicframework.com/docs/native/file/</a>, you can move the image in to application data directory and you can access from there.
