Hi Anny,

Press Refresh and the image will update.

Your computer has cached the original image from the server and does not 
realize that the image on the server has changed.  Pressing Refresh will 
force the browser to reload the new image from the server.

This process for updating the dictionary will get easier. I just need a 
little more time.
