One thing you can do is to not crop the image.
Instead, you can clip the image within another shape.

Cropping to a shape should work equally well here. You just need to select the cropping/masking shape (instead of the image) in the Layers panel. No need to lock children!

How may I drag the image around inside the crop area?

Designer's Crop Tool gives the cropped object a vector mask child, so enable Lock Children in the context toolbar of Move Tool and then move the image layer.

Can you please tell me where/how I can access the context toolbar of the Move Tool? Thanks!

It's the horizontal bar of controls for the active tool. You see its content change when you switch tools. By default, it is just above the view of the document. If the app window is too narrow for all the controls to be visible, there will be a button with double chevron icon at right-hand end, which discloses a list of  further controls.

Thank you, I just realized that I had to select the subject layer first. Appreciate your clarification.
