I've tried some of the cropping plug-ins but either I don't understand how to 
use them, or they don't do what I want.

I have a "full frame" photo that I want to prepare for printing.  The photo is 
2x3 aspect ratio(so lets say 2000x3000 pixels).  I want to print it
at 3.5x5 (inches or 2000x2857 pixels). I want to position the 
crop in the photo - i.e. in landscape I want to eliminate a few pixels 
from the left and a few from the right.
This isn't too hard to do with the current tools (could be easier), but

lets say I want to crop just a face out of a photo of 3 people, but keep a 
3.5x5 aspect ratio - I would like to be able to slide the crop frame around 
and see how it would look with 2 faces, or all 3,...

Ideally I set an aspect ratio, and then can resize the crop frame on the fly 
while I decide on the best composition just by sliding the corner of the 
frame.  Any ideas of an easy way to do this?
