Isn’t there an option to have disk images do compression too? Like we have in Ultra ISO software.

Only if you use Disk Utility to make an image from a folder or from a whole disk. If you just create an empty disk image it won’t use compression. You’d have to create an empty disk image on the command line to use compression.

Only the writable images can be compressed, they’re using the more ’compatible’ UDIF format:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Disk_Image#UDIF_data_format

But not if they’re growing images (SPARSE) or growing bundle image (SPARSEBUNDLE):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparse_image

A sparse image will just grow in size, it’s one continuous file. A sparse bundle image will grow too, and it’ll be made of smaller chunks. Good for backups or syncing. Like if you have a 1 GB disk image and you edit a small text file in it, you don’t need to save or transfer the whole 1 GB disk image, only the chunks containing the text file.
