    How to Create Folder Backgrounds for Disk Images

    If you are interested in making a professional looking diskimage, like this one below from Skype it is really pretty simple.











    Create Disk Image and Populate it with Material

    Create a writable image file with Disk Utility and mount it

    Copy the folder you want to burn to the mounted image

    Create another folder on the mounted image called something like bgimg

    Place your background image file in said bgimg

    Customize Disk Image

    Right click in the mounted disk image and select Show View Options

    A window such as the one below will pop up.














    Now putting a background image is as simple as dragging it from your bgimg folder on the drive to that little box that says “Drag image here”

    At this time feel free to change other elements

    Protip: old people have a hard time reading small things so pump up that icon and text size.

    Hiding bgimg Folder

    In order to make this look seamless it is necessary to hide the bgimg folder.

    We will be doing this using the terminal.

    Open Terminal and navigate to the image (cd /Volumes/imagename)

    Make the folder invisible (chflags hidden /Volumes/imagename/bgimage)

    Burn that Image

    Insert DVD or CD.

    Now right-click on the .dmg select Burn to Disc




















    And you are done. Congrats.
