Copying metadata

It looks like DropDMG uses custom copy routines. Does this mean Disk Utility drops information when creating an image from a folder? I need my permissions and extended attributes.

DropDMG uses its own copy routines as well as hdiutil’s, depending on the situation. Using Disk Utility shouldn’t discard the metadata unless you’ve changed the (hidden) preferences to make it do so.
