Q: How to remove doubled extension?



A: Use a String Modifier like:
  Expression: %b(".jpg","").%e

  Explanation: We use an "Replacement String modifier" to find and replace something on the "Variable" %b
                           Since only the last dot of the file name indicates the extension,
                           the first '.JPG' is only a part of the file name and can be modified as everything.


  A lot of information is extracted from files or can be computed based on different elements.
  Each of these information can be used in a rename expression through a "variable".   
  For example :
    %b    the "base" name (ie for "autoexec.bat" it is "autoexec")
    %e    the name extension (ie for "autoexec.bat" it is "bat")


  For example: change case, delete some characters, switch parts, modify the format of a date ...
  Modifiers are the tools that will achieve this.
  For example String modifier : "( )" 
  Used for "String replacement"
  The usage is near of the standard "replace" : ( "s1", "s2", s, n, c )
      s1    string to replace.
      s2    replacement string. If it is not specified, the string to replace is deleted
       s    starting occurrence. If negative, it is relative to the end of the string
      n    number of replacements to do. If negative, all remaining occurrences are treated
      c    number indicating if the search is case sensitive :
           0 (zero) for no, any other value for yes
