Lightroom respects xmp during import

If you're importing raw files and they have .xmp sidecar files, Lightroom will read the metadata settings from them, and the images will come into Lightroom with those settings applied. Same with dng; a ny custom xmp settings found in a dng when it's being imported will be used as the starting point for processing the file in Lightroom.

In the case of camera raw files that have been previously worked on, but do not have sidecar files, those previous edits will not come into Lightroom. Make sure any time you're working on raw files in other software that you save out the metadata to sidecar files. This is discussed further in Chapter 9.
