3.5.7 XMP Export *


In Photosmith, you may Export XMP metadata sidecar files to two locations:

  • A folder on your iPad which is accessible through Photosmith’s FTP service
  • Synced via iTunes to your Mac or PC

Deleting Exported XMP Files and Folders


While it's always best practice to keep things nice and tidy, it's not crucial to do so for XMP sidecar files generated by Photosmith.  Compared to digital photos, XMP sidecar files are tiny, less than 5 KB each.  This means 200 XMP sidecar files describing the metadata for 200 photos will take up less than 1 MB of storage space on your iPad.


Currently, there's no method of deleting the XMP files/folders generated through Export -> XMP Export in Photosmith.  Deleting XMP folders need to be performed using an FTP client - we like FileZilla, which is available for free from https://filezilla-project.org


To connect your FTP client on your Mac/PC to the FTP server running in Photosmith, you need to verify the following:
  • Your Mac/PC and iPad are connected to the same internal network (LAN)
  • Photosmith is open on your iPad
  • Photosmith's FTP Service is Enabled. You will also need to take note of your iPad's network address (IP address) - we discuss all this in FTP Server Section 3.6.2 of our User Guide.
After you gone through the above, enter the IP address of your iPad into the address bar of your FTP client.  The port number defaults to 21, and won't change unless you modified this number in Photosmith's FTP Server configuration.  Unless you explicitly configured Photosmith's FTP server to require a password, the username and password should be left blank in your FTP client.


One you've logged into Photosmith's FTP server, you will see a number of folders listed including uploads and Photos.


If you previously exported XMP sidecars files in Photosmith using Export -> XMP Export, you will see one or more folders called export_xxxxx, where xxxxx represents a string of letters or numbers either randomly generated by Photosmith, or explicitly defined by you during export.


You may delete as many export_xxxxx folders as needed to permanently delete these XMP sidecar files from your iPad's memory.


Note: An easier method for managing XMP sidecar files is to export them to a Dropbox share - this is discussed in Section 3.5.1
