Welcome to GEH searayman! :D

When you make an overlay click the 'Refresh Parameters' box just below where you put in the URL/Location of the image.. you can set how often it refreshes there! :)

Enjoy!

It will, depending on how often the refresh is set at in GE, and how often the page refreshes..

tell me, when the page refreshes does the image keep the same name?

Yeah, but for the future: Please use realistically refresh periods, not 1 or 2 minutes.

sorry about that, i just wasnt sure if it would even work. How often do you recomend?

and also for that is there anyway i can make it refresh in days instead of hours, or do i just need to convert like a month into hours?

It depends on the refresh rate of the origin. When the origin is updated every hour than refre**** every hour.
When it's updated just every month like the alergy forecast, than it's useless to update it every hour. Than it's enough when it's updated by being opened (once).
