XPM File Format

Adobe Extensible Metadata Platform file format

XPM is a data file format used by Adobe. XPM files contain metadata information, which uses a short description, keywords, author name, or title to describe a file. The file being described can be anything from an image to a web document.

XPM stands for Extensible Metadata Platform, which was created exclusively by Adobe for use with its programs. XPM allows programs to collect metadata in an easy and simple way, as well as keeping it up-to-date in real time while the project is being edited. Metadata information allows for the files to be easily classified and sorted.
