I have designed a logo for a non-profit that I want to allow different committees to use it, but I don't want them to be able to alter anything but the size.
I have created the design as a vector image(all font saved as outlines) with transparent background and with separate versions for black, greyscale at 80%, white to print on dark backgrounds and a specified color.
The skill of members varies as does their printers, some barely know what a jpeg is, others are prepping brochures for press printing, others are using the image on the web and for email.
I know I can take most image formats and extract, distort, erase, change colors, superimpose other elements etc.
I don't want others to be able to do this without permission from the organization board. Using illustrator in CS5 on iMac 27" OS X 10.10.4
