I do not know if this list has got a FAQ or not...but it seens like this one is going to be #1 when such a FAQ is updated.
I can imagine: 1) How to make a fixed aspect ratio crop? ....
2) What is the GIMP?
___________ Regardless, let's put hands on it:
Double click on the "rectangular selection" tool icon.
Click on the "fixed size/ratio" widgstuffie and choose your ratio.
Start a selection,and while holding the left button down, hold SHIFT on the keyboard.
To move the selection around after it's done, holt ALT + click and drag.
To crop image to the selection, choose the crop tool, click on the image, and click on the "from selection" button.

I don't know of a easy way of doing this, so I guess that's why I am asking.
I used a digital camera that can give me output @ 1600x1200, an aspect ratio of 1.33:1. As we all pretty much know, standard photo prints most commonly come in 6"x4", 1.33:1, or 7"x5", 1.67:1, 10"x8", 1.25:1.
Is there a way of accurately cropping a print to a desired aspect ratio. For example, I have a 1600x1200 shot that has some stuff that I could loose, but still be left with a image good for an OK 7"x5". If I just resize it to an appropriate aspect ratio, I still get the junk.
What I'm looking for is some kind of 'selection box', or a selectable aspect ratio, standard or not, that is also resizable that will enable me to select a portion of an image and get rid of the rest.
Is there an easy way?
Hope this makes sense to someone.
Thanks in advance,
