GUI for creating custom .dmg disk images.

What is DMG Packager for Mac

Note: DMG Packager is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.

DMG Packager... Creating a styled disk image for every new release of your software can be a tedious process. DMG Packager does the whole thing within one easy-to-use GUI application. Create a dmg, manage your product files, set up and preserve the dmg's Finder window styling, compress it and add a license agreement - all with a single button click. You can create a range of presets for different product variants, plus multilingual rich-text license agreements.

DMG Packager also has a range of individual tools for creating, compressing and profiling disk images, separate from its main packaging functions.

And it's not just disk images! You can create zip, tar, tgz and tbz2 archives too.

What's new in DMG Packager

Version 1.5.3:

Note: This product is not compatible with macOS Catalina and later.

  • Worked around a bug in Snow Leopard's new Finder which prevented setting window background pictures.

OK, I tried it - works fine, nice range of additional features. Question is: do I really need this one for creating a DMG twice per year? ;)

Charging $20 for something you can do in the Finder is pretty silly.

Looks like DMG Packager could save one a lot of work. I've used similar apps, but I'll have to give this one a try.

I agree with Britonius. I'm not a developer, so I have no need to own such a app. For thus, who are interested in is it a real good deal. PS: starQuiz X for a smaller Discount of 0%? ;-)

I second fonix, tested both, DropDMG and DMG Packager, and to work with DMG Packager is quite professional. And with this discount it's a real bargain.

DMG Packager requires you to provide a path to a preliminary r/w disk to modify the layout of image finder window instead of creating a temporary r/w disk. It's useful for people who distribute softwares (hence for every update you can just drag the app to the r/w disk), but for one-time job it's a little bit cumbersome. This is the only cons I found in this product. Otherwise it's a very good product.

For a software vendor, this seems like a good buy, but for the few times I've needed to make a .dmg (to encrypt for example), DropDMG has worked well.

I'm sure this is a great offer for software vendors, but I don't see a personal need for it myself since I don't distribute software and don't have enough MAC friends to justify packaging items in DMG format.

I own DropDMG and really like it, but it looks like DMG Packager has a few additional features that I'd like for making software distributions. First, you can set the background picture within the app. Second, you can preserve the Finder layout and styling. Third, you can add a software license to any type of image. The rest seems similar enough, but with the discount and those added features, this product is worth having.

For those having problems with the background picture, please note that this feature will only work on Mac OS X 10.4 and later. The background picture property of Finder windows is not scriptable on earlier versions of Mac OS X. This is mentioned in DMG Packager Help. (Obviously it needs to be mentioned in the log output for those who don't read Help.)

Sorry but it does not work. The background picture, although copied and made invisible does not show no matter how many times I mount the image. It lets me select the SLA (the sample resource supplied) but it does not display. Apparently the image has to be read-only for it to display the SLA? I made it read-only with another utility, still did not display the SLA. Has promise but no performance for me.

This is a very professional software, for both developer and the home user. It does not lack in features, and really does what it says. I am the developer of USE, and I can only encourage others to use it, as it saves a lot of time in the building process. However I would wish to have simple form of a droplet, for disk images that only need a softare licence agreement, and are already formatted and resized.
