iDmg


I thought I'd start off the blog with this very handy utility, which creates disk images in a flash. It may lack the advanced features of Apple's own Disk Utility, but that is not what it is designed for. The aim is to make creating disk images fast, and it doesn't get much simpler than this drag-and-drop interface.

Of course for advanced users, file systems and formats can be modified, and the whole thing is packaged in a semi-transparent window styled like the effects panels in iMovie and iPhoto. On the whole this is a well-designed, simple app which will speed up your workflow greatly.

While I haven't downloaded this application, I don't know why they made it. You can easily make a disk image by dragging a folder to the disk utility icon.

BTW, a great site, I've subscribed.

Thanks, I didn't know it was that easy to do. I guess iDmg users just enjoy the semitransparent interface...
