Hi, Andrea, XMP is natively an RDF-based format, so getting out XML isn't hard at all. You have a couple of XML-based options with exiftool: exiftool -X foo.jpg # prints the metadata in exiftool's own RDF/XML schema to stdout exiftool -tagsfromfile foo.jpg -o foo.xmp # writes the metadata in an XMP XML file Exiftool -tagsfromfile foo.jpg -o -.xmp # writes the metadata in XMP XML to stdout; only works in recentish versions of exiftool exiftool also has a CSV output that might be helpful to you; check `exiftool --help` for details on how that works.
