Long Live Open Source Software !!

XMP is an extensible schema (proposed by Adobe) so your EXIF, IPTC, JFIF,.. metadatas could still live XMP. the main advantage is that it is extensible and xml based so if you need more fields you haven’t reinvent the wheel, or another incompatible standard, but just a new schema. That’s why XMP files (files with extension xmp) is very important. But how to manage XMP metadatas (maybe in a format of file with extension XMP) in Linux?

The answer is XMP Manager. With this free software you can manage files with extension XMP and/or embed them into your image. You can edit, add or remove any metadatas stored in your image files. XMP Manager supports features, such asĀ support ‘title’, ‘description’, ‘creator’ fields (but It is very easy to add new fields), writes metadatas on-the-fly, and support multiple image editing.

To use XMP Manager, you can download it from here. It’s still in sources file. So you must compile it by yourself to make it run. You can see my tutorial here to compile source code in linux and install it to your system.
