I am a newbie to resin jewelry, having yet to purchase any materials. I have seen beautiful clear pendants with black silhouettes floating in them. I wish to make such things. I am assuming that some sort of thin plastic was printed or stamped and placed on a layer of resin and later covered with another layer. Probably done within a mold? Am I on the right track?
A second question. What is the best method for sealing photo images printed from an inkjet printer to be covered with resin?
Thanks for any help. I have so may ideas I wish to try.

I suggest using transparencies. You can see how they work in resin in this recent tutorial: https://www.resinobsession.com/Resin-Tutorials/306/Dichroic-glass-lookalike-resin-pendant-tutorial.html
As for sealing your ink jet papers, any clear drying glue should do the trick. We have this clear drying white glue in our store: https://shop.resinobsession.com/products/ultra-seal-sealant-and-glue

Thanks for the advice! I look forward to getting my fingers into resin–figuratively only.
