Since the image is embedded in the software,
you could have a menu option that would
dump the image to a .jpg or similar file format.
Something that's an option in the "configure"
menu maybe?

This should satisfy the most stringent reading of the license,
and would probably be appreciated by the artists whose work
you're using.

It would also have the advantage of not increasing the size
of your executable very much, since you're not including a
jpeg with the executable and having two files to pass around.
You just need to handle a little more code.
