How to rename multiple files on Mac

Sometimes its a bit of a pain to rename a batch of files in a directory to something more meaningful, right? For instance, lets say I have 300 files that are named in two parts (e.g. London_Canon.jpg, Toronto_Canon.jpg, Muscat_Canon.jpg)and I only want to remove the recurring “_Canon” from these files instead of a rename across the board that would remove the unique identifier (In this case, London, Toronto and Muscat).

If you like a challenge and some mental stimuli, use can script something and learn! or,
use this application called NameChanger for Mac. It’s free and very efficient. Got a few options under its sleeve:

Replace First Occurrence
Replace Last Occurrence
Replace All Occurrences
Character Removal
Regular Expression
