CkoXmp Can't find XMP data created by Photoshop CC 2014

Mar 14 '15 at 16:15

Looking at XML extracted using CkoXmp, it's clear that PS CC 2014 is saving the contact info struct as (had to edit it a bit to make it show in this message)

< Iptc4xmpCore:CreatorContactInfo Iptc4xmpCore:CiAdrExtadr="IPTCAddress"
 Iptc4xmpCore:CiAdrCity="IPTCCity" Iptc4xmpCore:CiAdrRegion="IPTCState" 
Iptc4xmpCore:CiAdrPcode="IPTCPostalCode" Iptc4xmpCore:CiAdrCtry="IPTCCountry"
Iptc4xmpCore:CiUrlWork="IPTCWebsites&#xD;websites2" / >


I'll have a look as soon as possible -- but it may not be until late Monday or Tuesday. I have a feeling it has to do with this (from the XMP specification)

NOTE Many XMP processors use a more concise notation for structure values as described in, “rdf:parseType="Resource" attribute”.

PS> The XMP API conceptually offers two things:

  1. The ability to extract XMP from JPG's and TIFF's, and the ability to add/modify XMP's to JPG's and TIFF's.
  2. A set of convenience methods to simplify the read/write/modify of XMP data. However, XMP is just a specific application of XML. Th XMP for reading/writing/modifying XMP docs are just higher-level wrappers that essentially use Chilkat XML internally. Anything not provided directly via the XMP API can be accomplished with the lower-level Chilkat XML API.
