Export XMP metadata with exported JPG and PNG images
Currently, when you select a single placed image, and choose File > Export and export the selection as a JPG or PNG, any metadata that is present in the image (keywords, description, etc) does not appear in the exported image.
What I would like is that if a single image is selected to export, that InDesign would retain all the XMP metadata (or at least the keywords) applied to the image when the image is exported.
The reason this would be useful is that sometimes users will crop and scale an image in InDesign, and then want to export the cropped image to a JPG and edit it in Photoshop, and then re-import it into InDesign. Currently, if they do that, the metadata is lost.

Wish this was included. Seems so basic. Especially considering "File info".
I just finished a batch export of about 15.000 JPG files for a bunch of social media platforms and I don't really want to group/write info for them manually in Bridge... : (

This is unbelievably critical. Not retaining Metadata upon export To .PNG or .Jpg defies the most basic needs of ID users. This effectively requires duplicate processes to redo what was painstakingly done in Lightroom or Bridge and then needlessly undone by INDesign. Please address this immediately! Thank you
