Archives Clearing image cache after reupload

Hi all. I just uploaded new versions of two images: DP115_Error.png and DP115_Trivia.png. But somehow the old version keeps showing. In the former image, it's actually showing the old image with the new image's size.

I've used ?action=purge on the pages, but that doesn't work. When I request the actual image files with a query string, I can see the new version (e.g. this example).

Is this something that just fixes itself over time or is there some other way to clear the cache?
Thanks, I appreciate any help you can give :)

edit: I don't know if anyone did anything, but it seems to have resolved itself over time.

I'm sure you've found out by now, but it can be anywhere from ten minutes to 2 days, it depends when the image was last cached on the server side
