Lightroom: Sizing and Cropping in the Develop Module and Improving Exporting

I'm far from an LR expert and have just begun scratching the surface of Photoshop CS6. However, I already see a few things in Photoshop that would make LR easier for non-experts like me.

- When cropping in LR it would be nice to have an overlay guide that shows the size of the image change as one is dragging and cropping (in cm, inches, or pixels)

- It would also be nice to have the options to crop by inches, cms and pixels

- It would be INCREDIBLY helpful to be able to crop by size (inches, cm, pixels) and resolution in the Develop module (at least, I think so)

- It would be nice to add more custom aspect ratios and delete old (or, in my case wrongly corrected) aspect ratios

- Photoshop, in general, provides tons more information about file size, image size, quality etc. than LR

- I find the Export Dialogue in LR provides little or no information. For example, you don't know what your file size is until after you export the image and look at its properties.

I realize that LR is more suited for working on multiple images at one time while Photoshop is better designed for working on a single image.

These are just my ideas and I'm hope that they make sense and will be considered to help novices, like me.
