Lock it, lock it real good

Take some control of the image that's displayed. Include a lock query string parameter and give it a value that's a positive integer. While our cache is not updated, and sometimes for longer, the same image will be returned by our server.

<img src="https://loremflickr.com/320/240?lock=1" />
<img src="https://loremflickr.com/320/240?lock=212" />

Multiple images on the same page

Your browser might cache the images when you request the same URL multiple times on the same page. You can resolve this by adding a meaningless querystring to the URL. So, for example...

<img src="https://loremflickr.com/320/240?random=1" />
<img src="https://loremflickr.com/320/240?random=2" />
<img src="https://loremflickr.com/320/240?random=3" />
