You can get hashtag suggestions for your Instagram photos right inside Sproutsocial.

JUST ADDED: The RiteTag extension's hashtags for image solution shown in the video below also works with all web to Instagram direct publishing and scheduling solutions, including Sproutsocial's - and all the others, too! Just follow the instructions for desktop-to-phone Instagram scheduling in the video for use in direct Instagram desktop upload solutions.

NOTE: The quick video below shows the previous RiteTag hashtag suggestions modal (popup). The current RiteTag extension is far faster to use since you see all the suggestions without scrolling, select what you want, copy, and close the modal.

The quick video below shows using the RiteTag Pro extension (latest version) with both Hootsuite and Buffer. It works with all social publishing sites, including Sproutsocial.

1) Firstly, you will need to have the RiteTag extension for Chrome, Firefox or Safari installed

2) Start a new post in Sproutsocial and attach an image to your post, then click the image thumbnail to open the full-size image

3) Right-click the image and select "Get Hashtag Suggestions"

4) Copy any hashtag by clicking it and copying or, copy all with the Copy All button on the right side to copy all hashtags to your clipboard. Then, crop and/or apply a filter and Apply, then Save, or just click the X to close the full-size image.

5) Paste the hashtags to the Caption section of your post

6) Set scheduling time and save. The post will send you a phone notification at the time you designate, for easy upload to Instagram!

You can also right-click images in any web page for the Get Hashtag Suggestions solution, even if you didn't upload the image to a Sprout social or other publishing composer. Also, there's a button beside search, on the left side on the RiteTag Hashtag Bar, for getting hashtags for any image in your computer: the up arrow button.
