Loading only 33 pictures max from Instagram when I request 99

In the refresh method located in THPhotosViewController, I inserted the count parameter to increase the number of pictures returned from the Instagram's API.

Here is my code: '''


When I run the app and check the view, the max number of pictures I can see is 33 and not 99.

Interestingly enough, if I plug in a count number lower than 33, it only shows that number.

E.g: count=15&access_token=... returns 15 pictures in my view from Instagram.

Any ideas from the community how I could get this fixed?

Thanks for your patience, I am a beginner. Arsene

hmm well I found this post and it mentions if you want to load ALL of the persons feed you can use -1 as the count variable

NSString *urlString = [[NSString alloc] initWithFormat:@"https://api.instagram.com/v1/users/self/feed?count=-1&access_token=%@", self.accessToken];

Getting there. With the -1 parameter I get to 48 media now instead of 33.

I just tested it. I wish I could get more, it's a good start though.
