    Hi,

    I am creating a neat image to place into a finder window; now the issue I am having is when I archive the folder or .dmg it with disk utility, the new folder from either the archive (.zip) or the .dmg from disk utility do not keep the window properties...

    How do I save it like that so if I .zip it up and send it to someone the window keeps all view options intact?

    Also the icon of the folder itself doesn't stay... when it is zipped up or imaged.

    Any help would be great!

    Nobody knows how to accomplish this task... I mean it's in lots of application's folders and .dmgs. Someone please point me in the right direction :)

    Wow so helpful! Nothing, whatsoever, pertaining to what I'm set out to do; I appreciate the effort though.

    Nonetheless, I figured it out:
    For anyone else trying to accomplish anything similar to this... in Disk Utility goto File -> New ->Blank Disk Image...
    Create an image and then when it's mounted treat that as you would the folder. Done :)
