    I have been searching anywhere and everywhere on how to use instagram image id to get to the user profile page. Anyone should help please for example: This image ID 14099531_175241472899974_1109713948_n.jpg, use it to get the profile page of the insagram user. I'll be grateful.

    Sure, here's what you do:

    Go to Instagram.
    Click on any person's images.
    Open up the Inspect Element tool.
    Replace the image ID in the code with the image ID you have.
    [​IMG]
    Your page should now look like the one in the image below.
    [​IMG]
    Go back to the Inspect Element tool and copy the "Scontent" URL.
    Paste the URL in your browser.
    Right-click the image and perform a reverse image search.
    If Google has the image indexed, you'll be able to find the page. Unfortunately for you, I couldn't find your image.

    Alternatively, I read in this thread that some tools named Iconosquare and Followliker can do this. However, considering I'm not involved with social media and that thread was from 2015, I'm unsure if this is still the case.
