Drupal: does not recognize a new image

I was handed a Drupal Website that I find difficult to modify. I am trying to replace an image with another one. I found the image location, I overwrote it with the new image and kept the same name, but Drupal does not seem to recognize the new image.

Even though I renamed the old image in the images folder to image-old.jpg in the file system , it still show up in the page. I also updated the /mytheme/css/style.css file - where the image is included as a background-image attribute -to point to the new image but did not work either.
 It seems to me that Drupal is caching pages, css  and images copies somewhere,I am new to drupal, Could you please direct me to the right place?

Thanks

Abdellah

First, flush all cache:
Goto: Home › Administer › Site configuration › Performance
At the bottom you'll find a "Clear cached data" button.

I understand that image is related to your theme, it's not embedded in a post, if so, what exactly is this image?
You'll probably need Drupal's own mechanism to replace it. so provide more info, and maybe we'll be able to help,
