Your browser may be displaying a cached image instead of fetching a new one.

You can add a fake query string to your image URL to prevent the browser from using the cached version with a line of JavaScript:

document.querySelector("img").src += "?nocache=" + Math.random();

Note that this particular script will only work for the first image on the page, you may need a more specific selector otherwise.
