Cropping by inches with ACR

In CS5 ACR users could crop images in inches, which is the way most of us work. With CC2014 we can only use ratios, which as far as I know is primarily used by videographers. Photographers work primarily with inches. With CC2014, we now have to convert our inches to a ratio when we crop, then set the workflow dialogue at the bottom of the screen to the the dimensions of the largest image our client has ordered and again in the save options dialogue re-enter the dimensions when we save. We used to be able to created multiple crop sizes from a photo session and save them all at once. Please fix and make this less cumbersome. Thank you.

Just processed 11 images, all 8x12, ratio, all 8x12 inches in "Workflow Options" dialogue box and all 8x12 inches in "Save Options" dialogue box. 10 images were vertical, the last image was horizontal. 10 saved as 8x12, the last image saved as 8x5.333". This did not happen in CS5 ACR This is now the 3rd time we've saved these images. The first time they cam out 1.3 x 2" and the group I think was about 3x2.

If some are vertical and some are horizontal then use a 12"x12" crop box and you'll get things fit inside that. You could also set the options to be Long Edge 12".

I always work with ratios and pixels, not inches, and have never taken a video.
