Crop photos to exact size

I would like to crop images to a specific size, for example exactly half the width/height of the original photo (in effect a form of digital zoom). Sliding the edges or corners isn't precise enough for this, especially if I'm doing the same for several photos and need continuity between them. Playing around with the aspect ratio settings is no help.

What I suggest is:
• One or two sliders and/or number entry boxes allowing you to set a percentage for width and height.
• Changes to sliders/number boxes should center on the middle of the current crop area.
• Changes by sliding crop edges/corners should also change the sliders/number boxes.

As a workaround while waiting for Adobe to implement this, the Any Crop plugin lets you crop to an exact pixel size. You can also define a preset that crops to exactly 25% of the pixels of the current photo (50% of the width x 50% of the height), centered on the photo.
