> Hi,
> I'm working now and I want to share with you my design for VLC DMG image in OS X. You can view one screen shoot in: http://imgur.com/o62dt
I don't like that 'Goodies' and the readme are only a little bit below 
the other icons.  I think icons should be organized in the same row or 
multiple rows which do not overlap.  Just my opinion :)

With the pattern in the background, the icon labels are difficult to 
read.  IMO this needs to be improved.

I expect the Applications folder to look the same everywhere, so I don't 
think you should use a custom icon.
> 3. To change the Desktop icon, we need to create a lot icons in one .icns file. do I need one special tool for this?
