This has been a question that has been asked for years on this blog, but I don't see any official response from TechSmith. Anyone know if this will happen in version 2018

Not only that, but if aspect ratios could include Profile picture format for FB, Twitter and other apps, that would be great. OK, the requirements technically are not ratios but pixel formats, but still would be helpful

I agree. For example, right now I need to crop an image to a 4x6 aspect ratio. It would be nice to do this by moving a resizable frame over the image -- such that I can drag the frame's corner to reduce or expand the frame, and it always retains the aspect ratio that I've specified -- and once I've gotten the frame the right size to include what I'd like in the image, be able to crop the image to that frame.

One way you might be able to achieve this would be to create a 4x6 aspect ratio image. Then save that image as a stamp. With stamps, it seems the aspect ratio is maintained as long as you click a corner sizing handle and drag. And you could use the opacity slider to ghost it to use as an overlay guide.

Cheers... Rick :)
