I am trying to create a fixed dimension cropping of 16:9 or 1920x1080.

1) When I Save that preset, the pixel dimensions on next use aren't 1920x1080, so the benefit of the pre-set is lost

2) When I Export my photo, the 1920x1080 cropping is lost and I have to type it in for the second time.


I'm very interested in making some cropping presets, but must be missing something as I still have to pro-actively type in the presets when trying to use them. MacOSX

Are you saving a cropping ratio preset (like 16:9) or a dimension-based one (like 1920px x 1080px)? They are not the same -- the first only constrains the ratio of width to height so for example for a 16:9 preset any pixel or linear dimensions that have a 16:9 aspect ratio meet that constraint.

After setting the Mode to Custom Ratio  1920px X 1080px and before applying the crop, choose Add Preset to make these dimensions available for later use.
