AI Image Classifier

Classify or tag images in seconds with AI. Define custom categories then let our AI classify images without any prior training.

Categorize and tag images with the latest AI technology. Normal image classifiers require pre-defined categories or extensive training for custom categories. Our classifier can tag images based on custom categories -- without training. Optimized for e-commerce and media companies.

Upload an image.

Enter image categories. For instance, to categorize clothing by type, enter "dress, shirt, jeans, skirt, scarf". Our AI assumes at least one category is correct, so if you upload a boat but define clothing categories, the results are likely to be incorrect.

Free images are limited by the CC BY-NC license.

This Hotpot AI service removes the background from pictures. We optimized this service to cleanly extract people and products, which is ideal for e-commerce pictures, profile photos, and marketing graphics. In more technical terms, we utilize state-of-the-art object segmentation models to pinpoint the location of important foreground objects like a person or a car. Then we separate the objects from the background with alpha masking and apply finishing touches to ensure the smoothest results.

For this service, pictures are saved only with user permission. For storage costs and user privacy, we only retain images for as long as necessary to run our machine learning models, and do not store photos beyond this.
