Many programs, utilities and just packs of files of various contents are distributed under OS X in the form of DMG files. Indeed, that could be simpler: mounted, copied the necessary files and discarded the unnecessary image. It’s all the more interesting to fiddle with ZIP or TGZ archives, especially since a DMG file can be nicely designed by changing the background, adding your own icon, etc.
DMG Canvas creates disk images (.dmg). The procedure for creating an image consists of simply dragging the necessary files into the application window. As the background, you can use the file created in the graphics editor. You immediately see the result as it will look in Finder. To create a finished image, click the Build button. This utility also allows you to add a multilingual license agreement (Russian is not supported), displayed before the disk is mounted.
