Magmi Will not replace the image with the same image.

It appears when updating attributes & images, Magmi checks to see if the value you’re entering matches that value that already exists. In the case of images, it checks only file name, no other statistic about the file (such as size). If the value is the same, it does not proceed with replacing it. I loaded a lot of images and made the mistake of not re-sizeing them. So I re-sized the same images but when I overwrite it, it seems to ignore it keeping the original image i loaded in Magento. Anybody have a work around for this?

Thanks in advance

So I just used the batch rename tool in photoshop. Added an _ to the end of the file name…adjusted the sheet to reflect the underscore. It replaced the images.
