Finished

The image file has been replaced.  All pages that displayed the old image will now display the new one.

I still see the old image!

To save on transferring images, your browser (or network) may have cached the old image file.  That is, it saves a copy of the image on your computer.  As the file name remains the same, your browser/network does not download the new image.  

Refreshing the browser window generally clears this issue.
