Initial Code
$("img").hover(function() {
	var originalSrc = $(this).attr('src');
	var rest = originalSrc.substring(0, originalSrc.lastIndexOf('.') );
	var last = originalSrc.substring(originalSrc.lastIndexOf('.') + 1, originalSrc.length);
	var newSrc = rest + '-color.' + last;

    $(this).attr("src", newSrc);

  }, function() {
    $(this).attr("src", $(this).attr("src").split("-color.").join("."));
