Importing Georeferenced Geotiffs in ESPG:4326

I'm trying to import Geotiffs. I tried using custom layers where I store Geotiffs in an AWS S3 bucket, and using that url. But the image displays across the map multiple times.
I tried to pay for a pro account and to use mapsheets. I imported the file directly from my computer from the same georeferenced Geotiffs I placed in my S3 bucket. When it uploads it says it can't find the goereferencing information, and that I need to georeferenced the image on caltopo. This gives a very poor precision georeferenced image and would rather not use that option.
So my question is what format is needed for caltopo to be able to read the georeferenced data. I use Geotiffs in general as it is a very universal imagery format. I could do a JPG with a wld file accompanying it. Is the coordinate sytsem i use not ok. ESPG: 4326. I also tried ESPG: 26910, but that didn't work either. attached is an example of what I'm trying to import.

    TIFFs are weird. I reprojected it to 3857 (Web Mercator) using gdal and it uploads fine. Looks like a bug on our end that we will fix. Here's the file reprojected.

    Hi Ben,
    Perfect thanks, that worked for all my other layers.

    Perfect. We'll fix the bug with the other projection, glad we could work around it.
