Can you point me to a specific file? I searched for 'star wars' in MR and there are a lot of games (oh man, that pod racer game was kinda addictive back in the icebook days). Are you just trying to get it into your emulator environment, or have you done that and you're looking to make it a desktop background or something?

Same here. What does the OPs question point to? Advertising?
The Star Wars files are here for years partially: http://macintoshgarden.org/search/node/star%20wars
If you want to mount a .image file in a Mac emulator, best use DiskCopy 6 to open it from your emulated MacĀ“s HDD.

Ah, that one. A ripp off from Macintoshgarden, where the game is since 2009.
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/star-wars

Download and unzip the file.
Run your Mac emulator MiniVMac or MiniVMac II with SSW 6.0.8 or lower.
Drop the .image file upon the MiniVMac screen.
Open the game disk and run the game.

If you want to play the game on a Mac Plus or similar, the .image has to written back to a 800k floppy.
DiskCopy 4.2, DiskDup+ and some others will do that on compatible vintage Macs.
