All known file formats using extension .XMP

While XMind Marker File is a popular type of XMP-file, we know of 2 different uses of the .XMP extension. Different software may use files with the same extension for different types of data.

Adobe Extensible Metadata Platform

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 various 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.
