Can Lightroom remember the last crop size I chose? I'm a wedding photographer and when I'm cropping images, I typically crop many of them to the same size ratio. It would be really great if I didn't have to choose the crop tool and then also choose the same crop ratio again and again. Can you make it so that when I choose the crop tool it goes to the last one I used? That would be awesome and save me many, many clicks.

Are you aware you can crop many images at once the same using the Quick Develop Panel?

Select Grid Mode in Library.
Select all the Photos you wish to have a specific crop ratio.
Apply the Crop in the QD panel
Adjust individually as necessary.

Yes, Thank you. I was aware. I currently use the SYNC feature to crop multiple photos and then adjust each, but if the crop tool would remember my last choice, I feel it would be easier/faster, since I have to adjust each image after cropping the group anyway. It would be quicker than cropping a group of them and then having to go back in and adjust each one, if I could just choose the crop tool (and it remembers what I used last, then I can adjust the image and move on to the next one. (hope that makes sense)
