I was having trouble installing Fedora19 from my LIVE-DVD. In that, settings, rhytymbox, etc.. apps were not functional. Therefore, I again installed Fedora18 and upgraded it to Fedora19 using fedup.

Therefore, I am looking forward to create a bootable image of my installed Fedora19. So that if any issues occurs, I can simply install the system from this image.

Is there any way of doing this? If so, kindly guide me.

Your live-dvd was not properly created in this case. Please verify your ISO and re-burn it. You can create a bootable image by just using dd to clone your entire disk. It's is preferred to just backup your user data and keep a Fedora ISO handy.

By backing up your /home directory all your personal app settings should be restore-able when you upgrade or install a new Fedora version.
