Just trailing this soft ware, When you save a raw file can you save it with out saving a photoshop file as well ?

The .xmp sidecar will be save with a raw file. This sidecar file holds the IPTC data that CMN can add. This way the original raw file is never modified.

Hi. So, I'd like to ask the same question since I wasn't totally clear on the answer. Can RAW files be saved without sidecar .xmp files? I'm evaluating whether or not we should purchase ControlMyNikon to use alongside a unique Java applet. The applet monitors the folder where images are sent and then renames them. However, having the extra .xmp files in there stops this from working. We add metadata later in Adobe Lightroom when the images are processed.

The .xmp is created only if you have added IPTC tags in ControlMyNikon, otherwise it will not be created. Best to give the trial a go and see this in action.
