Crop Tool Changes

I love Photo RAW, but the crop tool drives me crazy sometimes (it’s the little things!) Can you please consider the following:

  • When selecting the crop tool, can the aspect ratio default to the original ratio of the photo, rather than freeform? I frequently crop to the same aspect ratio for a majority of my photos.
  • When cropping can you make it so the orientation changes from landscape to portrait depending on how you drag the crop handles, rather than pressing the swap button – basically make it like the Lightroom crop tool.

Thanks for your consideration.

    +1 on the above comments… also the “create the crop size” , then “move the picture around inside the crop” seems a bit back wards… “Creating/adjusting the crop” then “moving the crop around” certainly seems move intuitive.

      Ditto, it drives me crazy to have to go over this time and time again. At least start with original ratio, which I think is the most used one anyhow. And once selected keep it there, till manually changed. Please pretty please!!

    It would be nice if you could add and save proportions yourself. For example, I like to crop to a panorama view, 9×4 or 9×3

    Maintaining the aspect ratio by default would work for me. What drives me most nuts about the way it works now is;

    – I add a layer and pull up another photo for the additional layer

    – I use the move tool to resize the layer. Since it is a photo with people, I want the aspect ratio to be maintained. If I hold the shift key while resizing, everything is fine. But…

    – if I forget to hold down the shift key, the aspect ratio is not maintained.

    – then – REALLY UGLY – the only thing I can do is undo (ctrl-Z) and then entire layer is dropped and I have to add the layer again.

    – in the very least, allow Ctrl-Z to only affect the resize action.

    Default to original aspect ration if the image has not been cropped. If an image has been previously cropped, resort to the last used aspect ration for that image.
