    Why is there no way to show aspect ratio of a photo that has been cropped already?

    Hi Frank,

    You can view the details of the photo in the Process Summary tab.

    There is no aspect ratio but Size based on which the aspect ratio can be calculated.

    Yes it can be calculated if

    1) I put these numbers into a calculator

    2) Take this number and multiply it by the first number of one of the aspect ratio and see if I end up with the correct second number. If not I start again with 1) ...

    While every tool shows the values of the image you are currently looking at (i.e. exposure, keystone,...) the crop tool shows the values one has been using on the last crop done before which might even have been in a different catalog, on a different day or even week. 

    To me this looks like a very obvious design flaw.

    Just saw this while looking for an hour or so to find a way to switch the crop from landscape to portrait!

    Coming from LR where cropping is an intuitive charme I second that CO's crop tool isn't well thought and designed. Speed editing? How many keys do I have to press if I select the cropping tool, then trying to rotate a bit. Going back to crop and finally you also have to press enter instead of clicking the pen or mouse. BTW. I tried to enter a ration of 3:2 when 2:3 exists to get a landscape ration but this isn't even possible.

    In the same category go the thumbnails in the filmstrip which always show the uncropped image so it's really difficult to recognise what the image looks like. Especially when it's low key.
