Have you looked at using Bridge's batch rename…? It now has regexp & string subbing… You also have the opportuinity to store previous name in file XMP when renaming…
Familiar with it, but unfamiliar with the needed text or text string to remove the titles shown above and simply leave the last portion.

Well this could be done with script or the built-in Batch Rename function… Much depends on where all these files are?
This should give you what you want… ^ matches beginning of line . the dot matches any character the + makes the dot greedy then \s matches space… Replace with nothing… Hope that makes sence…?
Doesn't make sense at all...but it worked!
Thanks for the amazing time saver.
As always there is more than one way, another would be to use:-
In the find field, this get everything upto shu. Leave the replace with blank.
I does make total sense… If you don't want to learn or have the time for script do learn reguar expressions ( GREP )… Bridge ( rename ) & InDesign ( find & replace and styles ) make use of these pattern matches… Very cool stuff… and yes Paul lots of ways to skin a cat I do like that… but it takes a little practice…
I could kiss you! Thank you so much!
