XMP file format

DescriptionXMP (Extensible Metadata Platform) is a file format that allows for the embedding of metadata within digital assets, such as images, audio files, and documents. It was developed by Adobe Systems in 2001 to provide a universal way to describe metadata across different file types and platforms.
Technical detailsXMP data is typically embedded in the header section of a file and contains information such as title, description, keywords, copyright, and creator. The data is stored in XML format and can be read and modified by compatible software applications. XMP can be used to embed metadata into a wide range of file types, including JPEG, TIFF, PDF, WAV, and MP3. It allows for the creation of a standardized and easily searchable database of metadata for digital assets. Additionally, XMP supports a range of languages, making it a versatile format for managing metadata across diverse content types and geographies.
