Yes, you can create a read-only API token as per the instructions here:

Then you can share this API token with your developers and they will have read-only access to the registry.

I’ve just tested it out and tried pushing an image and got the following permissions denied message:

Using default tag: latest
The push refers to repository []
68a85fa9d77e: Preparing 
denied: requested access to the resource is denied

Hope that this helps.
