1. It should be possible to simply DRAG A SELECTION RECTANGLE without modifying its dimensions and without cutting out the image background! It could be done for example by holding down only the Alt key while dragging the selection rectangle.

2. It should be possible to PROPORTIONALLY RESIZE A SELECTION RECTANGLE by dragging one of its corners while holding down a specific modifier key (e.g. Ctrl key).

3. It should be possible to specify the dimensions of a selection rectangle by manually entering the exact width and height values. It would be faster than looking at the values in the status bar.

These are standard features in most graphics programs. Please implement them ASAP - they are very much needed!

To make sure everybody knows what a selection rectangle is:

FYI - to your Point #2, you CAN do this.  Hold down your <shift> key while moving one of the corners (at least that what it is on Windows).
