What is the name of your xmp files ?
You said you have a photo = "file.jpg" and XMP file = "file.xmp"
But, if there's no change since I try, Digikam XMP's file name should be
"file.jpg.xmp" and not "file.xmp".
It could be nice if this was configurable, but I don't think.
With this kind of naming, you event don't have to make import metadata,
Digikam recognize the XMP for each file and you just have to do "re-read
metadata from files" (but you have to be sure you don't have Digikam only
metadata in your Digikam database (May be they could be lost but I'm not
What you use (metadata > import XMP) force you to choose an XMP file each
time, but with multiple files, it can't simply figure which XMP files it
have to import for each files.
