on/in the leaflet

Hi all, in the following context, should I say "on the leaflet" or "in the leaflet"?

The resort looks totally different from that shown in/on the leaflet.

My guess is that I should use "in" because the picture of the resort in part of the printed material, just like we say "in the newspaper".

Am I right? :)

    Yes, I think most people would say "in the leaflet".

    If it was a flat surface like a poster, it would be "on the poster". If it was an advert printed on a single sheet, I would say "in the advert".
