How to force an image to refresh itself

Gilles Van Eylen -

You uploaded an image and instead of that image, you still see the previous one ?

 

Why is it occuring?

You uploaded the image A and B under the exact same name. 

The image A is loaded in your browser's cache and the image B you uploaded right after will not be considered as a new content by your browser due to the same name. Therefore, the image A will remain in cache and will be displayed until the cache will refresh.

 

How can I fix it?

It's easy as pie : upload your new image with a different name.

It will force your browser to put a 'new file' in cache.
