The browser cache relies on the image URL to decide whether the image is the same or not and whether to use the stored version. It means if we change something within the URL and then attempt to reload the image, the cache will no longer be able to change that it is the same resource. The cache will fetch it again from the server.
Approach: To change the URL without affecting the image, you can change the parameter that can be attached to the end of the URL. The parameter needs to be unique. We can use a timestamp, the URL will always be unique.
Now, even if the image is replaced with a new image it will load the new image. In general, this may have some performance issues as it won’t be using the image from the cache and will have to use the image from the server always.
