a simple solution that's worked for me is to force a hard reload with

will force a server refresh that bypasses cached content.

I had this problem a while ago and tried the method you mentioned but
could achieve any success. In the end the way I got round this was using
PHP to place a number on the end of the url like so ...

Generate a number
<? $randid = "time()"; ?>

Call the image like so...
<? echo "<img src=../images/$picture_name?$randid>"; ?>

Hope that helps
