I have images in a directory named accordingly;

A151946_101_12.jpg
A151946_201_12.jpg
A151946_A01_12.jpg
F1298393_501_83.jpg
F1298393_F01_83.jpg
F1298393_E01_83.jpg

Everything [before] the first under-score ( _ ) may be 7 or 8 characters. But I would like to remove everything [after] that the first under-score, and then apply an increment. To produce the following results

A151946_01.jpg
A151946_02.jpg
A151946_03.jpg
F1298393_01.jpg
F1298393_02.jpg
F1298393_03.jpg

* Of course I'd like the increment to start over for prefix. Is this possible? Can someone please suggest a plan?

Thank you!
