Description
===========

XMP (eXtensible Metadata Platform) is a mechanism proposed by Adobe
for embedding document metadata within the document itself.  The
metadata are designed to be easy to extract, even by programs that are
oblivious to the document's file format.  Most of Adobe's applications
store XMP metadata when saving files.  Now, with the hyperxmp package,
it is trivial for LaTeX document authors to store XMP metadata in
their documents as well.

hyperxmp integrates seamlessly with hyperref and requires virtually no
modifications to documents that already exploit hyperref's mechanisms
for specifying PDF metadata.  hyperxmp can embed a wide variety of
metadata as XMP, including the list of authors, document title,
contact information (telephone number, postal address, email address,
etc.), copyright statement, keywords, natural language, and much more.
hyperxmp is compatible with pdflatex, latex+dvips+ps2pdf,
latex+dvipdfm, xelatex, and lualatex.

Installation
============

To create hyperxmp.sty simply run "tex hyperxmp.ins".  Install
hyperxmp.sty somewhere where LaTeX can find it.  See
https://texfaq.org/FAQ-installthings for general information about
installing packages.

Building hyperxmp.pdf is a little more involved:

        pdflatex hyperxmp.dtx
        pdflatex hyperxmp.dtx
        makeindex -s gind-hyxmp.ist hyperxmp.idx -o hyperxmp.ind
        makeindex -s gglo-hyxmp.ist hyperxmp.glo -o hyperxmp.gls
        pdflatex hyperxmp.dtx
        pdflatex hyperxmp.dtx

hyperxmp – Embed XMP metadata within a document

XMP (eXtensible Metadata Platform) is a mechanism proposed by Adobe for embedding document metadata within the document itself. The metadata is designed to be easy to extract, even by programs that are oblivious to the document's file format. Most of Adobe's applications store XMP metadata when saving files. Now, with the hyperxmp package, it is trivial for document authors to store XMP metadata in their documents as well.

Version 2.2 of the package added support for the IPTC Photo Metadata schema. It allows \xmpcomma and \xmpquote to be used in any hyperxmp option, not only those that require special treatment of commas. And it introduces an \xmplinesep macro that controls how multiline fields are represented in the XMP packet.

The package integrates seamlessly with hyperref and requires virtually no modifications to documents that already exploit hyperref's mechanisms for specifying PDF metadata. The current version of hyperxmp can embed the following metadata as XMP: title, authors, primary author's title or position, metadata writer, subject/summary, keywords, copyright, license URL, document base URL, document identifier and instance identifier, language, source file name, PDF generating tool, PDF version, and contact telephone number/postal address/email address/URL. Hyperxmp currently embeds XMP only within PDF documents; it is compatible with pdf, XeLaTeX, +dvipdfm, and +dvips+ps2pdf.
