Of course the point of the advanced rename (thank you) is that it lets you check before committing, but just to be perlsnickety, with 's/.jpeg/.jpg/' you would get:

hajjpeg ==> hajjpg

(because the . matches anything; use a backslash before the . to match just a period.)

You're right. There are various workarounds, if I was worried about mismatches I'd use 's/\.jpg$/.jpeg/'

I avoided the '\'; in my earlier example because the forum software here keeps eating escape characters after doing a preview of the comment. I hope they're intact here :-)
