when i am using the rectangular select or crop tool i would like to see guides proportional to the selection

lets say i am using a 5 by 7 ratio for my selection as i want to print at that size

i want to have an even amount of space around the subjects if there was a smart guide like safe area visible as i drag the selection then i could easily select with confidence
