I have done this, first i sprayed the pic with a sealer then i watered down white glue. Used this to glue picture
on tile and after it was dry i used thined out glue and glued over the picture several times ( drying inbetween)
Did this two years ago and it's still looking good.

What type of sealer did you use? I thought there might be someway I could do this using a computer to scan and print on some type of product made to do this.

Rust-oleum Lacquer is great for this. I have used it to seal printed pictures, just make sure to let the print set for a few minutes to dry good before spraying, and put several coats on (let dry between coats) oh and it is around 3.00 at Wally world 4-5$ at those other stores.
Hope this helps.
