Can you report them for that? Even if it's just claim they used a group photo without the consent of everyone in it?
@9: You do need consent to use photos for advertising purposes, but with pictures taken in the office or at company events consent is already implied. Some companies go so far as to add consent clauses to their employee hiring paperwork so no one can complain about their image being used for corporate promotional purposes. So there is probably nothing OP can do about the picture. UNLESS the picture wasn't taken at the office or at a company event. If the employees just got together after work and posted their group pictures from dinner to facebook, the employer could get in trouble for using personal photos without permission.
I'm pretty sure you can make a stern legal request to have your image removed, especially since you don't still work there.
