The Super Sneaky Way To Upload An Image To Instagram From Your Computer

When creating Instagram content for your brand, you’re often working within Canva, Photoshop or some other graphic design program on your computer to create the images you share. The frustrating part of this process is that Instagram only allows users to share content from their mobile device.  So in order to upload an image to Instagram you have to send it to your phone first - and then upload your post to Instagram. 

This is a major pain in the butt for those of us who are in a set workflow on our computers.
