I have 128 pictures in Lightroom with the filename IMG_XXXX-2. All of the files still have the number the camera gave it but somehow the -2 was added to all of the filenames. All I want to do is remove all of the -2's or anything past the last original filename.
I know that my Lightroom catalog will be messed up but I plan to open another catalog with the new filenames then delete the original one. I don't care about keeping the changes I made to the picture

New Name <Substr:1:8>
or New Name <Word:1>_<Word:2> if "XXXX" is not restricted to 4 characters.

You could also use the "Remove" method.
Remove count: 2
Starting at: 1
Use regular expressions (unchecked)
Apply to: Name
That should trim off the last two characters of the name.
