DropDMG 2.0 is now available.
DropDMG is the easiest way to create “.dmg” and “.img” disk images on Mac
OS X. It can encrypt images and post-process them with GZip, BZip2, or
MacBinary. It can create images with rich-text license agreements. It also
supports segmented images and images that auto-open when you mount them.

* Hold down Option when dropping a folder or image to specify
settings to be used for that item (temporarily overriding the

image that supports license agreements on both 9 and X.
* Creates smaller zlib-compressed images when running on 10.2 and
later. (The images are still compatible with 10.1’s Disk Copy.)

BZip2 is slower than GZip but creates smaller files.
* Improved the layout of the preferences window.
* Faster at copying files to the image when running on 10.2 and
* Worked around 10.2 bug that caused errors when a file or folder
name contained a slash (as shown in the Finder).
* Worked around OS X bug that prevented copying files larger than
about 1 GB.
* See the manual for the full list of changes.
