How to keep dreamweaver from reverting to older images

Sometimes I'll update images on a site via FTP, but later when editing the actual file (php or html) that those images are in Dreamweaver will revert back to the original one on the server. How do I keep it from doing that?
I'm using dreamweaver 8.

Do you synchronize?

Do you use a local and remote method of working, in dreamweaver you should have two views available, local (the site on your hard drive) then remote (the site on your server)

Oh, It's remote, I make the changes on the live site.

This may sound kind of pedestrian, but it works for my processes (full disclosure: I do not use Dreamweaver) and the principles should be applicable to yours.

Change the name of the directories when you release a new version of the web site or of the images.

I use dreamweaver cs4 but its probably the same....
got osite definition for that site in dreamweaver   ( on the menu bar .... 'Site' then "manager sites")
choose your site and select edit.
click on "remote info" and make the line "automatically upload files to server on save" is NOT ticked.
since you use FTP to upload your files you should also click on "local settings" and unclick the "enable cache"

Beat me to it :(

The above is most likely the answer...

See, the problem is that I have it set up as "ftp" and not "site", I don't have it defined as a site, so I don't have any of those options. My only options are basically the connection options, I'm not sure where the local folder is even defined in the settings as I never set that. Thanks for the help.

You have to have a Site defined in order to use FTP.  These options appear under Edit | Preferences | Site

Then Manage Sites

Then select site and click "edit"

I don't have any options as far as synchronization, local files, etc...

Help!

On the first screenshot, uncheck the box for Put dependent files on save.

Second thing to check is under Manage Sites (do Site | Manage Sites | Advanced | Remote Info) and look at the following.  Make sure the circled box is not checked

can you clear up something? - you say the "files in dreamweaver revert  back to the original one on the server."  what about the actual website? does that show the old files also?

the simple solution would be to use Dreamweaver the is supposed to be used and define the site and the remote FTP details, keep a local copy of the site - edit the site locally and then upload all within dreamweaver.

OR  delete all site definitions and simply use dreamweaver as an editor and use the menu file->open and open edit the files cloe them and ftp the files up to the site.  its a bit like when I usie a cordless drill to hammer in nails :-)

maybe explain your development cycle might help
