Where is the "Enter Custom..." option from the old Lightroom and how do we get it back (see attachments)? I like to make my photos 1080x1080 for Instagram and was able to do this in the LR Classic version.

There isn't a custom crop in LRCC 1.0, but I'll change this to a feature request.

The good news is 1080x1080 ratio is identical to 1x1, so you can carry on as normal and set the 1080px in the Save To dialog.

This is a very important feature to me, for preparing photos for printing. I do quite a lot of panoramas and often want to crop a picture to a ratio of 1x2 or 1x3, for example. So please add my vote to this feature request!

This is completely ridiculous! It's the first feature I went to use and couldn't find; unfortunately, it's the most important. There's no way I'm slowly dragging inconsistent aspect ratios into all my pictures. Please change this Adobe! Until then, it's back to the previous Lightroom for me.

I don't see this as a problem if you have classic.  In fact, I don't see any of the features missing from unclassic as a problem.  Classic can work just fine with images synced from the cloud, you already have a way to do this!

I'd much rather Adobe focused first on the prime job of the new Lightroom - being able to get those images to the cloud efficiently in the first place.  With good feedback of the process, estimates of time until completion, the ability to prioritise, and the ability to work with those full quality images in classic even before the upload is complete.

These are all things that classic cannot do, they're unique to unclassic - with no alternative or fallback option - and therefore need to be prioritised in favour of duplicating functionality that's already available to us.

Requesting "Enter Custom Crop" Ratio in Lightroom CC

I am starting to use Lightroom CC more than Classic in my work flow because it is faster and transparent between both iPhone and MacBook Pro. 

But it does lack some fundamental features found in Classic. 

Please include the option to enter a custom ratio. My favorite cinematic ratio is 2.39:1. 

Lightroom CC is currently unable to give the option to manually input these custom ratios.

Is there any word on when this very basic functionality will be added to lightroom cc? As a new user, I am finding it is very disruptive to my workflow. I need to open images in photoshop just to crop them. I am now going down the rabbit hole of trying to figure out if I should use lightroom classic cc, even though I already started on lightroom cc. It would save so much aggravation to just have all the same features. It makes no sense to release a "new" version of software with basic features stripped away.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC: Ability to set a particular Custom crop ratio.

Is there a way to set a particular custom crop aspect ratio in NEW Lightroom CC (not classic) other than those built in as presets. I can select "Custom" and move "crop box" around to any aspect/crop, but it gives no feedback on crop size. Bottom line: I can't see how to enter in or specify a specific ratio (as is allowed in CC Classic or PS). Can anyone help? Can it be done in the new Lightroom CC?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Add CinemaScope 2.35:1 or 2.39:1 aspect cropping ratio.

I love this application. The only thing I would add would be a 2.35:1 or 2.39:1 aspect ratio or at least the ability to create a custom crop and save it to apply to other images later.
