Hey, does anyone here happen to know of any good programs for burning Blu-rays that offer customizable menu features? All I want is to be able to put whatever picture I please as the background menu image, but most of the apps I've found just offer cheesy pre-made templates. Not worried about price right now, just want to know what my options are. Thanks!

Toast 18 Pro? If Toast 18 Pro is no good you'll probably need to use authoring software designed to run on a Windows PC. I couldn't find any other Blu-ray authoring software (what you need for Blu-ray menu creation) for Macs listed in VideoHelp's software section.

Thanks for the replies, guys.
Does anyone have experience with DVDFab? I found and bought a program called Leawo Blu-ray Creator, which allows for custom background image and music on the disc menu, but the pre-burn encoding is OBSCENELY slow (to give some context, my Mac is a 12 core intel with a SSD, among other frills, and is wicked fast at basically everything Iíve done on it until now). On top of that, it pauses every time the computer or monitor goes into screen saver or sleep mode, which means babysitting it for hours to keep it awake and moving. Also odd is that Leawo doesnít allow for thumbnail selection on the scene select menu.
Based on that link DVDFab seems very similar in function, but if it allows thumbnail selection or is faster than Leawo I think Iíll get a refund and get that one instead.
Whatís the difference between Toast 18 and Toast 18 Pro? I love how fast and sturdy Toast is and that it verifies burn success, but Iím unaware of any menu customization functions.
Is there a way to make a Windows program function on a Mac? Sorry if thatís a silly question.
Thanks again for the help, gang.
I don't have a Mac so I can't verify that Toast 18 Pro has all the features for Blu-ray authoring that you want. I only know that for a long time Toast has been the go-to product for Mac owners who want to burn optical media.
Leawo is a second-tier software company and I'm not sure that their Blu-ray software has licensing and certification from the Blu-ray Disc Association. It is more likely to be reverse-engineered like DVDFab, which is best-known for its software for ripping copy-protected commercial Blu-ray and DVD discs.

Upon further exploration I have found Roxio Toast 17 DOES have a custom menu function, itís just very well hidden. But it allows for a custom menu image, and thatís all Iím really asking for in a menu, so Iím happy with that.
Iíve requested a refund from Leawo for their flimsy, glitchy program, so God willing that happens fast and smooth, and I can get back on track.
Thanks for the names of Windows/Mac programs, usually_quiet. Hopefully now I wonít need to resort to that but itís excellent to know I have that option if I should ever need it.
