rename files


If i have a directory of files, e.g.

tree.jpg
dog.jpg
dog2.jpg
trail.jpg
bigview.jpg

how do i rename them such that each prefix is appended with "-1024", like so:

tree-1024.jpg
dog-1024.jpg
dog2-1024.jpg
trail-1024.jpg
bigview-1024.jpg

I've played with the rename command, but can't come up with anything that works.
