Review: Disk images are a snap with DMG Converter

Create and convert disk images, easily, with this intuitive software.

Disk images are a great way to store backups and other complex sets of files. Creating and converting them doesn't get much easier than with DMGConverter for Mac. This intuitive program makes it easy to create new disk images, convert disk images to other formats, and more. It helps to have some basic knowledge about the file types you'll be dealing with, but the program, itself, is a piece of cake to use.

DMGConverter for Mac has a sleek, streamlined interface with tabs for creating a new disk image, converting a disk image to another format, segmenting a disk image, or compacting or resizing a disk image. Getting started is as easy as selecting the desired function and format and then dragging and dropping the desired files onto the interface. There's a variety of formats to choose from, and users can also specify the compression level and volume format. Disk images can also be encrypted with 128- or 256-bit AES encryption. The program has tools that let you view image, checksum, and format information. There's no built-in Help file, and the publisher's Web site supplies little more than a list of features, but this isn't a significant drawback; anyone who knows enough about disk images to want to use them should already be familiar with most of what DMGConverter for Mac offers.

Overall, we found this program to be functional and well designed, and we recommend it for anyone looking for a hassle-free way to create and convert disk images. DMGConverter for Mac installs and uninstalls without issues.
