    Welcome.

    Mac OS X already comes with a utility to create a disk image.

    Go to Applications.

    Go to Utilities.

    Select Disk Utilities.

    Hopefully this will solve your .dmg needs.

    If you really want to write your own app for some reason (perhaps you want to add custom resources to the dmg or something) then you should probably look at wrapping the command line tools that create dmgs. I would start by looking at hdiutil.

    Note this assumes you already know how to write programs for the Mac in Cocoa or perhaps Carbon.

    Read the linked page. That is the documentation. If you want hand-held through the basics of writing a Mac program then you've come to the wrong place. You need to work through and fully understand the tutorials on the Apple developer website.

    If you need to learn Cocoa a book like this one is worth getting.
