Interested in hearing others Master Image creation process and tips

I know there are a few blogs out there mapping this process out and I always enjoy looking through them.  Please share your favorite or your steps if you'd like. 

I've been a fan of this one for awhile now:

I would love a tool that does master image versioning, change control, rollbacks, backups, etc. Something like Citrix Studio, or the discontinued Login AM by Login VSI. I hate using snapshots as the only method of managing images, because they are too unreliable (and not even designed for that purpose).

Never heard of LoginAM.  We're in the middle of a LoginVSI POC right now... might mention that to them.

I agree with you.  I'm always making things more complicated than it needs to be probably.  I always struggle with how much I want my template configured.  Ex... i don't want Horizon Agent installed on there in the event we change versions at some point.  But I do setup our branding (corporate wallpaper, grey color theme in registry, etc) on the template since each image will require that regardless.
