uhm... don't enable the pointer tool? set the resizability to false? set the editable to false? Seriously, if you have a image editing app, then you might want to use a cached version of the image anyway, because of rotation and similar ways to lose image quality. This is such a non issue for 99% of the apps, and easy to solve for everyone else, i'm amazed that you even feel the need to ask this question like that.
