Refresh images

I changed the images on my website days ago. The old images continue to show up in my ads.  I've looked at my feed and it directs me to the new images. What does it take to refresh them?

Days! We've waited weeks before now. Our feed is uploaded daily.  But the images can take ages to get refreshed. Even images flagged for low quality (for example because they weren't cut out on a white background) can take a long time to get refreshed after the issue has been addressed.

this is a rather old thread.

google may take a few weeks or several months or

more, to update changed images for a shopping-ad.

to help improve the refresh-rate, if possible, use a new file name, under
a new directory/folder, or add a random url-parameter, or all three; e.g.
from:
http://www.example.com/images/red-wagon.png
to:
http://www.example.com/images/updates/red-wagon-09202017.png?update=09202017
