Image won't change


I've changed the 2x image but after saving and refreshing, the 1x image still shows.

I watched the rest of the video and I also checked a couple of the other threads. I used the developer tools. I clicked Network and then ticked Disable cache. I then shrank the browser and it changed to smaller images. When I expanded the browser, it used the larger images.

This solution works because I had the same problem and I did as above and I can see the images change.
