Q: How to remove doubled extension?
A: Use a String Modifier like:
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
