Is there any way to keep a picture in a "negative" format? -

Meaning if I have a picture scanned into my computer - I then use say Microsoft Picture it (software)....I adjust this picture from its natural state (colored)....to "negative".....I then save it.

But is there anyway once I save it....from keeping others from having the ability to adjust it back to its normal condition?

Because once I save a photo in "negative".....if I go back in (re-open my photo program...Microsoft picture it - and hit the "negative" feature again....the photo will revert back to its original condition (meaning showing the picture in full color).

I don't want this to happen - I want to be able to send a picture off in negative format.....but not allow the other users to revert it back to normal.

Thanks for any help.

Short answer - no.

A negative image is just the image with the colour and brightness values inverted - when you send that image to someone else there is nothing to stop them doing the same thing, its an action performed on the image not a property of the image itself.

Er... why would you want to prevent someone doing that anyway?
