Metadata is data about data that describes the content or characteristics of a file. With Adobe's XMP (eXtensible Metadata Platform) system application, information about an image is captured automatically during the content-creation process. Critical information such as titles, keywords, shutter speed, ISOs, camera model, date, author, copyright information, and so on can be easily retrieved and understood by users. The system utilizes XML (eXtensible Markup Language) which has options for web compatibility and standardization. XMP metadata can also be edited and updated in real time during the workflow. In this research, we verify the extensibility of XMP and its ability to keep track of images. This facility provides the possibility for web applications to protect content creators' rights and also to provide image content information to related industrial fields. As an open-source web-based technology, it is freely available to users; therefore, it can be an attractive solution enabler.
