Replace existing image with new across whole store easily?

So we have a 'Free Delivery over £39' image across various pages and collection on our store and would like to update it. Is it possible to replace all instances of that image somehow easily. Has anyone else done this? if so how i.e. can you upload a file with the same name so it effectively swops it? (i dont think you can)

 

Thanks in advance

You are able to! All you need to do is re-upload the image with the same name. Shopify will warn you that this will overwrite the asset.

Doesnt seem to work like that for us. Just creates a new file name by adding a load of characters at the end of the same file name.

 

Any ideas?

You need to delete the file before re-uploading. The extra characters make the file name unique since the file names match. System does not overwrite. So delete, re-upload.

That's odd! If I upload a file called "some-image.jpg" and re-upload that same image it just replaces it!

just tried it and its broken everything.

Original filename:

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0249/3501/files/Free_Del1.jpg?11077

Updated filename after deleting the above one and re-uploading

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0249/3501/files/Free_Del1.jpg?11083

Looks like im in for a late night and have to remember everywhere it was uploaded to... sigh...

How was it inserted into liquid? The trailing numbers need not be used.
