Adding Keywords to file

I have started adding keywords to my pictures using Adobe Bridge [because Windows won't tag my Canon .cr2 raw files] and the keywords are save as a separate .xmp file. Can I embed keywords in the metadata of the file rather than as a separate .xmp file?

Thanks.

If you convert them to dng files, you can embed the metadata. Otherwise, an XMP file is created, unless you use the save in a camera raw database option in the camera raw preferences.

RAW files cannot store metadata. You must have a sidecare file or render them to a different format to embed keywords.

Thanks, Chuck. I usually convert to jpeg or png for uploading and tag those but would have liked to tag the pics in their raw format. Might give your suggestion a try, though.

I would go with the dng method, as using the camera raw database allows for files to get separated from the xmp info.
