I use this quite a lot on photo's from my digital camera. I often want to crop the photo to the prettiest region of it, but I want to constrain the aspect ratio to make the result exactly fit my desktop, or to make it exactly fit the aspect ratio of my favorite online print shop.

There are actually two use cases:
- constrain to any custom aspect ratio. Possibly some preselections (3:4, 4:5, 9:16, 10:15, 11:15, ...) could be provided, but it should in any case be possible to specify any desired ratio. - keep the aspect ratio of the original (but I guess this is just a special case of the above)
