Translate Japanese character on photo or graphic to English?

Does anyone know of a way to translate graphics, pictures or buttons with character's rather than just text?

I primarily need a way to do it from a PC, but a mobile app would be good too.

Google translate works fine for text but I notice I can't read links that are images instead of text.

Any other good translation tips or tools you know for Japanese to English or English to Japanese?

Actually they just added this feature in a couple of days ago to their Android app:

Point, tap, brush and listen - Google Translate Blog : http://googletranslate.blogspot.com/2012/08/point-tap-brush-and-listen.html

Unfortunately Japanese is not listed as supported, but with Google, you never know. Give it a try.

Cool, it looks like it is on the Iphone too, Hopfully the picture part is too.

Is there a way to do that from a PC browser?

Not from a browser - it is with Google Glasses ability in the Android app - I dont know if it is supported on iPhone - the blog only mentions Android
