Drag and drop DMG creation with iDMG

One of the handy things about your Mac's OS X operating system is the ease with which you can create DMG disk image files. Stick a file, a folder, or an entire volume into one of these guys, and you're guaranteed that all your files' Mac-ness will travel with them. That's not always the case when you create a ZIP or TAR archive file. iDMG takes this built-in capability and makes it even better.

With iDMG, it's easy to drag-and-drop your files or folders into the application's window, or onto its icon to build your disk image. Want to do something fancy, like add a custom icon? No problem. You can name your image, set permissions, and even compress the image. It'll tell you if you're trying to create a new image file that's going to overwrite an existing one, and for big images, it can use Growl to let you know when the process is complete.

iDMG is a Mac application. It runs under OS X version 10.5 (Leopard).

    I went to the website to download this and I find it kind of ironic that iDMG is downloaded in a zip instead of a DMG
