  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.
  • It's Lightroom update time again! As well as the usual new cameras, lens profiles and bug fixes, Lightroom Classic has a new local Hue tool, improved ISO-specific defaults, performance improvements and more. The Lightroom cloud ecosystem also gets local Hue, as well as Versions, Activity notifications, text watermarking and the ability to upload your own Discovery tutorials. Here are the full updates about Lightroom Classic and the Lightroom cloud ecosystem.

I think its a deliberate non feature for good reason. There are an infinite number of ways to crop a photo. How would Lightroom know where you wanted to crop ? Why should it remember one particular position ? If you want to apply a particular crop to hundreds of photos then that can be easily achieved using the sync function.

LR offers two important crop ratios (Original and As Shot) and always defaults to "As Shot". "Original" is going to be for most cameras 3:2 or as near to 3:2 as your camera fits usable pixels on the sensor. "As Shot" will equal "Original" unless you have some cropping aspect ratio set in the camera controls. Otherwise the camera always puts out a full set of pixels and "Original means what your camera calls 3:2.

thanks because I am often concerned with printing on a 15x10 (roughly because values are different in fact so custom crop otherwise i have a thin white line on a edge or extend and lose part of image) glossy paper at home, I generally crop 3:2 images 4:3 from lumix tz10 and 4288/2848=1.506 ratio close to 1.5 as you say and would like it reminds that i selected 3:2 in the list the image before or yesterday instead of default as shot in the drop down list. best regards marc
