Create custom disk images.

Overview

DMG Canvas helps you manage the content and appearance of disk image files using helpful templates. Choose your files, create your background image using helpful controls, and click "Build". Your disk image will appear in Finder exactly as you designed it.

Disk images, delivered with style
  • Simplified design. With DMG Canvas, creating backgrounds is easy. Just drop in images, add customized text, and you're done.
  • Maximum compatibility. DMG Canvas creates disk images that work seamlessly on any version of OS X. Say goodbye to compatibility issues.
  • Retina ready. DMG Canvas supports Retina displays on OS X 10.7 or later. Your disk images will be bold and beautiful.
  • macOS Sierra ready. DMG Canvas also supports code signing disk images, so developers can be prepared for changes to Gatekeeper, particular Launch Path Randomization. Apple strongly recommends using disk images to ship applications, so developers should take note!

LOVE this application. Takes away the hassle and makes it brain-dead easy to customize and distribute a Disk Image. HIGHLY recommended.

Pretty much the best DMG tool. This is one the few that always produce a correct dmg when you use background pictures. Recommended.

Sorry if that was happening to you then. This comment is now almost 2.5 years old. In that time I haven't heard of anyone having a problem with this, so if you do, please feel free to send an email!

This is a wrong linkage on MacUpdate Desktop which is linking with copy.

This should be fixed now; apologies for the months-long delay.

My main dmg tool. It never fails creating a OSX cross compatible dmg file. Something other comparable apps do not.

atm the best to compile DMG files. Works as advertised and is worth every penny.

I'm looking for something to make "pretty" Lion installers. The InstallESD.dmg file has a background image in it. But as supplied by Apple, it doesn't seem to work. And I'd like to hide some folders and change the size of some icons--basically make it look like a Snow Leopard installer. Is there an easy way to do this with DMG Canvas or similar too? I tried converting the InstallESD.dmg file to Read/Write, but didn't see any way to use DMG Canvas to change an existing dmg. (Did I miss something.) I tried making a new DMG, using the files in InstallESD.dmg as the source. That looked real nice, but wouldn't install.

I alsways trusted SimplyDisk but with Lion it kinda behaves strange. Sometimes created invalid dmg files. So did some searching for a alternative and found it with DMG Canvas. It works fine with Lion, payed for it and happy using it now.

I have to be honest, as a long time DropDMG user, I didn't think I would ever find a better DMG creation utility. Well, now I have. We create many DMG's for distribution to our cleints. Custom background, custom window size/position, custom text, etc., etc., etc. Where DMG Canvas shines is in its unusually great usability. It's simple and reliable. The only issue I found was resolved by my RTFM. :) Five starts for an excellent tool. Don
