Some Feedback and Documentation
I try .gif format as well as .jpg. I save the original .DMG WITH MY BACKGROUND image showing, and verify I have the image saved on the read/write volume I created, with View Options showing that background image. All loks God, except when I copy to another Mac, the image is gone.
So, I then create a ‘read only’ DMG of the original DMG using ‘convert’ from both DropDMG and Disk Utility. This keeps the resulting DMG large, but with READ ONLY, when I mount that volume on my Mac, the background image stays. When I transfer that second DMG to a different Mac, again, the image and icon views are back to normal and no image appears. I have tried saving the second DMG as a ‘compresssed’ (my preference as it reduces the size by ~ 100%) I get the same result. What can I possibly be doing wrong? I se background images on DMGs releases all the time, but I’m having a helluva time gettign one to work. Any advice anyone?
