    Usually people may say:

    I saw a cute boy in your picture; is it your son?

    I saw your glasses on your picture.

    Usually people may say:

    I saw a cute boy in your picture; is it your son? (You are looking at a picture or photo and see a cute boy)

    I saw your glasses on your picture. (the picture is lying on something and a pair of glasses are on top of the picture...perhaps you asked "Where are my glasses?" and this is the answer)


    Let's see what natives wll say.
    Both are correct...as I have shown above.
