Batch change to names

Howdy All,

Is it possible to do a batch change to a series of pictures to change the names?

I imported a few hundred shots yesterday and for some strange reason they all imported with the name of _MG_numbers instead of IMG_numbers.

I'd really rather not sit there and add a capital I to them all one by one.

Thanks in advance.

***Update***

After a little exploring in Automator (which I've never used before) I worked it out and it took about .25 seconds to change all 702 file names.

I just used the change text feature making _MG_ into IMG_

Can't believe how easy that was!
