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.

Finally voted with my feet and cancelled my Creative Cloud subscription over this issue. It's bizarre that it remains unresolved - but hoping the others like me who are cancelling their subscriptions over this chime in here so Adobe knows it's a revenue issue. It can't take too many of us cancelling $600 / yr. subscriptions for the company to take notice, surely...

I have just moved over to CC cloud. I can't believe it's not a feature. I'm thinking the same, there are other tools out there...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Crop - Custom Aspect Ratio.

I understand that this still hasn't been fixed and I haven't been able to find any information from Adobe regarding this. There isn't a way for me to use Lightroom and be able to export a 5x3 ratio or anything custom. There is a custom option, but all it does is let you drag around and not actually type in a custom ratio. It's been several years of this and I'm about done with this workflow. Is Adobe still involved in Lightroom, or is it no longer supported?

It is lack of such an essential feature, just because of users so soft like you guys, if I'm Adobe I don't care either, the most you can do is to put such a cautiously question here, so wait for 10 yrs bro, like this is some company paying you monthly

I'm not sure what you are saying. You might rewrite this. I can't tell if you think this is a good idea, if you are for Adobe, against Adobe, Adobe is paying me?

Adam adobe definitely is still involved. Only been using for a few years but from what I can gather Lightroom is their baby, I felt like they wanted to phase out lightroom classic. Though Classic has many more features which is confusing.

It just doesn't seem like they are involved is the issue. I thought that this Lightroom would take over as well, but then it just seems like everything stopped. I've wondered if their Lightroom team has been more recently tasked with Photoshop for iPad. It still lacks features and I'm sure that is what they are really looking into as of right now. Lighroom works and they are okay with that until their other things that are not finished are done. Lightroom has been lacking this simple feature for over three years now, and that's the issue. It's something that should have been included from the launch. I love the cloud-based things Adobe has been working on recently. I was a sceptic at first, but this working from home that I've been doing has really put the cloud-based to good use with my team.

Oh and a custom aspect ratio would be heavily required in Lightroom for iPad too. The app is awesome but it is crap that I cannot set custom ratios by entering exact numbers.
