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 big deal for me.  I want to crop to 11x14, which is a standard aspect ratio, but I can't do it in lightroom cc.

Victoria, This seems to be an old feature request, that never got traction.

Are you a mod or dev that can jam this into the pipeline? (sorry new to the community, not sure who does what around here).

I know Lightroom CC is supposed to be user friendly, and accessible to most, but a custom defined crop is kinda basic. we should have this feature.

I gave up my classic+photoshop subscription in favor of the mobility of this program. kinda regret that move now...

I wish I had that kind of power! ;-) The number of votes does influence their priorities, so if you have other photographer friends who also want this feature, get them to come and vote too.

Vote where? I agree, it's a basic tool.

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.

One of the first edits I went to do in Lightroom CC was to output an accurate 4:1 ratio panorama for a print job.

I can't do that.  This is a major limitation.  I have to export and then crop in Photoshop.  Lame.

Is this topic really 2 years old.... Very disappointing the minute I hopped on Lightroom cc for the first time. Why am I going to pay a monthly subscription to the latest and greatest when something like a basic function has gone unaddressed for two years...
