10.4: Create DMGs in Disk Utility via drag and drop
Authored by: MtnBiker on Apr 12, '06 09:18:07AM

If you're done with a project and you've created many versions of parts of the project (or even if there is no duplication) you can make a disk image and later open the image and retrieve something you need without unzipping the whole mess and having to remember to delete the unzipped files.

If you upgrade a product like Photoshop with many files in the app folder you can dmg the folder and then go back and grab pieces you need.

In summary, you can use it the same as zip, but later look at the files (open or copy them from the disk image) without having to delete the unzipped file after a quick look. You can of course copy many small disk images to a archive CD or DVD and use it as described.
