[prMac.com] Anaheim Hills, California - Araelium Group announced today the release of version 2.0 of its DMG Canvas disk image creation application for Mac OS X. DMG Canvas builds disk images from template documents that users create. Simply design your disk image's appearance using the graphical WYSIWYG editor and click Build.
New in version 2 is advanced background layout with custom text objects and images. Using this new view, multiple images and customizable text boxes can be layered on top of the disk image window's background image. This streamlines the creation of background image art, removing the need for other tools.
A great feature for application developers and other professionals, DMG Canvas also allows you to specify the license agreements displayed when the disk image is mounted. License agreements can even be localized into many other languages for non-English end users.
With the 'dmgcanvas' command line tool, the disk image process can even be entirely automated. Once a DMG Canvas document has been created, the dmgcanvas tool can be used within larger scripts such as application build processes, to create the disk image without ever having to open the DMG Canvas application.
Version 2.0 also includes Leopard compatibility with disk images built on Snow Leopard. Without using DMG Canvas, disk images created on Snow Leopard will not show their background images and other visual attributes when mounted on Leopard and previous versions of Mac OS X. DMG Canvas seamlessly solves this problem which otherwise would require having to boot into Leopard.
DMG Canvas(TM) is a product of Araelium Group, a development company located in Southern California dedicated to developing Mac OS X applications. Araelium Group is the maker of the popular Screenflick screen recording program, and the MySQL database tool Querious.

* Advanced background layout with custom text objects and images
* More Finder window options such as showing the toolbar and sidebar, file name text size and position
* Customize individual icon sizes by resizing the icon
* Tiger/Leopard compatibility with disk images built on Snow Leopard
