                        The Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) information resides in
                        the &quot;App 1&quot; segment of a JPEG image.
                        An XMP segment is XML based and contains
                        Resource Description Framework (RDF) data, which itself can
                        contain the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) information.
