I use Nikon a lot, and Nikon in their infinite wisdom has decided to embrace "almost" 2:3 image sensor proportion. I would love it if DxO could enable one to specify a "default" 2:3 crop on a per-camera basis. Needless to say, this default would not apply to in-camera crops (e.g. 4:5)
This is a different issue. You should create a new Feature request post.

BTW, folks, you didn't say what you think of my request #1 and #2.

In response to Ralf's question in his post Move all 4 lines of the crop tool at the same time, I add a fourth request.
In practically all Mac OS applications (I don't know about Win), resizing a window or a selection (like with the crop tool) while pressing:
  • the Alt key makes both opposite sides move symetrically
  • the Shift key keeps the aspect ratio (but the opposite side does not move),
  • the Alt and Shift keys, does both, hence keeping the aspect ratio with the center remaining fixed.
With DOP, only the second feature, with the Shift key, works.
Please make the Alt key one work too like in all apps.
TIA

What do you think of my requests 1 and 2? Wouldn't they be very handy?
I think all of them should be very simple to implement and they would make our workflow much easier and faster.

Yes,

I agree with your points #1 and #2 in your original post Nick_

With point #1 - allowing us to enter pixel dimensions directly into an 'edit' field - we would need some extra logic to guard against us entering pixel dimensions (accidentally or otherwise) into those fields that exceeded the dimensions of the original picture. But I'm sure that extra safeguard shouldn't need anything more than simple arithmetic to be applied to our 'typed-in' dimensions.  (I'm assuming also that we are not considering the possibility of expanding or stretching or 'up-ressing' our images by using this proposed improvement - as that would be an entirely different topic than 'cropping' of course  ;D )

And on your point #2 - showing the actual trimmed or cropped image dimensions in the EXIF area (or anywhere else) - Oh! yes please ... I've lost count of the times when I've wanted to know the size of my cropped image!!!

We would 2 fields.

With the current tool you can exceed the dimensions of the picture and hence have black triangles on the sides or the corners. It's OK with me and in some cases it can be handy.

And on your point #2 - showing the actual trimmed or cropped image dimensions in the EXIF area (or anywhere else) - Oh! yes please ... I've lost count of the times when I've wanted to know the size of my cropped image!!!
And what about an extra field displaying the times you missed the size of your images!  ;)
