I could really use a destructive crop method that can be triggered by shortcuts for processing large numbers of files. I know that many people would say that having a non-destructive crop is better...just not in all circumstances. Here's the scenario.I am managing a hundreds of photos of students for our school database. The photos are all rapidly taken with lots of extraneous background and very poor centring. They are also just too big in file size and bloat the database if loaded as taken (yes I know, better source photos would be great, taken at a lower resolution...yes we have tried to train the staff) This was possible in photoshop with a selection and a series of shortcuts: Rectangular selection (based on a ratio) Crop (user defined key strokes) Image size (Shift-Command I) Save at a lower resolution (Command S and offered at save time) In photoshop I managed about 200 files in about 25 minutes. This would take hours in Affinity - batch won't work because this would require the same selection to be made each time. What do you think? I know others miss this too... As a second best, the ability to click-drag to expand the crop selection (ie expand from centre not at edge or corner) would be very welcome
