You won't see anything unless you decide to resize the canvas (maybe some other operations as well?)  But if you do try to resize, suddenly your original pre-crop but rotated (if you did any straightening )image is back with some really oddly shaped blank space around it where you resized the canvas.

 

I see. That was not what one would expect. Very awkward indeed!

I've just been playing aorund with Affinity Photo and to me the crop tools is a bit unintuitive - Once I have cropped I have already decided how and which area to crop and the idea of accidently dragging the cropped image area is a  bit weird. The only thing I can see is the raterize and trim option in the layers panel. Compard to the tools I'm used to I do find it confusing.

No, I don't want to use the marquee tool either ...

.... Just to add also, as a long-time Fireworks user, you can't underestimate how useful these option are in Fireworks, especially if you're creating mockups:

Crops selected bitmap (crops the slection only and doesn't affect canavs size)

Crop document (crops canvas to the selection)

Trim canvas (similair to crop document)

Fit canvas (resizes canvas to fit all layers, including objects outside of the document area)

Used these a zillion times over the years - so simple, yet really useful. Something to think about for Photo and Designer maybe?

It looks to me like there is still no easy way to permanently crop (i.e. crop destructively). If not, IMHO, this needs to be added ASAP. 

From a workflow standpoint (I guess I'm used to the Photoshop tool from many years of use), NOT having a destructive capability actually makes my job harder. 

There ARE times you want to cut away the stuff you don't need!

Yes, and in my case almost every time.

All we need is this little fellow:
