AutoHash employs a smart visual recognition program to examine your picture and find out what it is about.

Next, from its database of hottest and trending hashtags, it suggests you the best list of hashtags. Surprisingly, it works perfectly, especially when you’re using this tool for photos of nature, pets, and food.
