    When looking at a users instagram page can you sort through all the images/videos to see which has the largest engagement.

    Is there a way to quickly sort through all the pics to see the top pictures

    Maybe with iconosquare, but I think that's only an option with your own account.

    Using their API, you may be able to do that. Fetch all posts, calculate their engagements (Likes, comments) and then output the data in the sorted order.

    If you're doing this to later scrape photos so you can get their most popular ones, know that their most popular ones will likely be their most recent. This is because their account won't have been the same size in earlier posts, yet may have had better quality images.

    That is true, but at least you can get a view of their popular pics recently. it is still helpful if anyone has any ways to do this.

    Pretty sure you could do this even without having to use the API.

    Just hire a programmer as I don't think anyone will be willing to give this away for free.
