XMP Is Text

The first important thing to learn is that .xmp files are simply text files, readable by any text editor or word processor, that conform to a specific syntax and are saved with a .xmp extension. So it's easy to read and, if necessary, edit XMP metadata.

The second important thing to learn is how the user interface in Camera Raw and the File Browser relates to the .xmp files that get stored in various locations on your computer. When you apply keywords or copyright notices, where does that data actually get stored? The answers may surprise you, but if you're at all curious, it's highly instructive to take a peek at sidecar .xmp files, saved Camera Raw Settings and Settings Subsets, Metadata Templates, and even File Browser cache files with a text editor.
