I have a large aerial imagery .sid file of measuring 4.5gb. This .sid file needs to be added to a AGOL web application as a base layer.

What is the process of preparing the .sid file to be uploaded to AGOL as a tile layer so that it can be added to the web application?

I have ArcGIS 10.8, ArcCatalog 10.8, and QGIS 3.24 at my disposal. I am in a Windows environment.
