The XMP Basic Schema contains properties that provide basic descriptive information.


AdvisoryGets the XmpArray object to set the advisory property to specify properties that were edited outside the authoring application.
NicknameGets or sets a short informal name for the resource.
ThumbnailsGets the XmpThumbnail object to set an alternative array of thumbnail images for a file, which can differ in characteristics such as size or image encoding.


Equals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object .
(Inherited from Object)
GetHashCode()Serves as a hash function for a particular type.
(Inherited from Object)
GetType()Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object)
ToString()Returns a String that represents the current Object .
