Thank you, but I still don't understand the procedure. I found the pane that allows me to specify a size. But that seems to be independent of the create-password-protected dmg process. When I follow the standard create-password-protected- dmg process, I don't seewhere the opportunity comes up to adjust the size. I don't understand how I can merge both into one workflow. There are many tutorials for the dmg-creation process online, but I could not find one that includes "here is your chance to specify a size."

Follow the instructions I posted above, choose an encryption option when creating it, and drag the folder to it in the Finder. If you create one straight from a folder instead of a blank image, you won't be able to specify a size.

Got it. Thank you. You provided the first key info (create from a blank image). But then it would not function. My confusion at that point was not in the how-to-create process, but in the how-to-use. With some experimenting, I discovered how to use. It wasn't that complicated; it's just that I am not intuitive. It's for guys like me that people write "The Missing Manual" type of books; every single step has to be there, or we make a mistake.
