Non-editable .jpgs?

Is it at all possible to create a .jpg(or any image file) that is non-editable? The company I work for currently has an issue with people editing our images and using them in ways we aren't ok with.

Is there anyway to set a security setting to make it so you can't edit the file or something along those lines? I have a feeling that this is a stupid question, but hey it's worth a shot!

Thanks for your time.

The only thing you really can do is watermark them, the way stock image sites do, but of course even that won't stop every form of hijacking.

Even if you could secure the file by making it read-only, or password protected, etc., anyone who can display it on their screen can capture it and work all kinds of evil on it.

I kind of figured this is what i'd hear. I agree that water marking is probably the best way to go for now.

Thanks for the answer John!
