I have the same question, so consider this a bump!
I found the FileInfo SDK thats used for making XMP Panels. It
seems like it could be used to read and write XMP data, but...
there's not much documentation for doing so, just docs for making
XMP Panels. :|
I'm so very surprised that adobe doesn't have a library to do
It's also pretty hard to believe that not very many people
have needed this functionality yet.
I'm in need of such a library too. Actually I should be able
to read iptc of an image before uploading this image to the server
with flex. I'm not sure this is possible because of security
reasons. Can anyone confirm if this is possible?
I found an undocumented library at
but haven't got it to work yet.
please reply on this post if you know any more details about
