XMP is an acronym for Extensible Metadata Platform. Files that contain the .xmp file extension normally store metadata information that describes an associated image, database or Web document file. The XMP file format was created by Adobe as a part of the Adobe Extensible Metadata Platform.
An XMP file can contain a variety of information about the associated file, such as the file description, author, copyright information, title and keywords. These details are saved in the standard metadata format, making it searchable by XMP-compatible applications. The XMP files are used to organize large volumes of files into a searchable database.
