When using Photoshop Elements 2018 I always load up about 10-20 photographs at a time. I select my crop which is 8 X 12 at 300 DPI. It's the size I used for marketing and selling my photographs to various publications. For whatever reason when I move to a new photograph the crop tool resets itself to use photo ratio. I previously used Elements 11 and never had this problem. In fact I've used numerous older versions of Elements and never had the issue. Only seems to have started when I got to the 2018 edition. All other versions I've used keep the crop tool the as you left it no matter what photo you are on. An 8 X 12 option would be great in the drop down as well.
