How can I transfer an inkjet full color photograph to a textured leather surface? Answered

I want to print a full color photograph on a wide format HP inkjet printer on to some kind of transfer paper and then transfer that image to leather that has a textured surface. The problem is getting the image down into the grain of the leather and not just on the raised surface of the leather obtaining a complete and clear image.

Probably can't be done with transfer materials; anything conformant enough to get down into the grain would be unlikely to print or unlikely to transfer, I think. If you could modify an inkjet to print directly onto the leather, that _might_ work.
