You mean like just posting an image?

Instagram graphic dimensions are pretty weird and native to Instagram. I create things using a sites like www.canva.com to tailor make the proper fit.

For instance, when I'm looking at my Instagram account and would like to post, I'm only seeing the option to upload one of the photos I had taken with my phone. How to upload a graphic that isn't one of the photos?

Ahhhhh gotcha.

I mean, I've only used mobile for Instagram. Don't think there is a desktop app for uploads. Just views.

In Android, when you open add image (+) in the Instagram app, it defaults to camera folder, but you can click on the camera folder then from the drop down you can select a different folder from where you want to upload the image.

You can use a different platform to add graphics to the Instagram image. Such as canva.

Ok, what did the trick was to first tap and hold on to the graphic to download it into the gallery folder in the phone. And then upload the graphic from the gallery folder onto the Instagram's post. Thanks again everyone!
