    Hello,

    do you know how I can get the actual ID of a picture?

    I don't mean the URL but the actual ID. It's a pretty long line of numbers looking something like this 448979387270691659

    Anyone know how to do it?

    I need it to follow the people who liked or commented on a specific photo.

    Hi,you can visit iconosquare.com and find photo ID.

    For example:

    Its photo ID is 994195409155779139_1088465889

    visit the image link then CTRL+U to see the page source code
    then you will find
    media?id=995188277568606322
    and
    content="183361795"
    the image ID will be

    995188277568606322_183361795

    iconosqare is the way we did it as well, as they use the ids from instagram for everything they do, friends, photos and so on, you can automate most stuff using them, good luck ;)

    Any update with this?

    Iconosquare is no longer free and I'm having a tough time finding it manually.

    You can use websta.me.

    For instance this is a post by the official @Instagram account: https://websta.me/p/1363848133134346388_25025320, where the media id is 1363848133134346388_25025320, more precisely the set of numbers after the underscore is the user id.
