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.

Custom Crop Ratios were implemented for the Lightroom Desktop app effective with version 4.3

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi,
I would like to add (and save) some customized ratios to guarantee consistency in cropping operations, in my case for panoramic ratios (17:6 as for the amazing Fuji GX617 in the past).
If providing a "save customized ratios" capability is not as easy as I could expect, you should provide in the meantime a way to let the user edit the two values of the ratio when he selects the "Customized" option in the local menu of the "Crop and Rotate" panel.
Thanks in advance.

+1. It's ridiculous that such a core image processing functionality was not already implemented when it was launched but even more ridiculous is the fact that 1 year later it's still not there! Come on Adobe, just 2 freaking input boxes to specify custom ratio.

This would be great. I just found it that this feature does not exist when I went to do a 32:9 for a dual monitor export.

+1 Recently looked at making the switch to CC but this is a deal-breaker. Couldn't use this app for more than 30 minutes before running into this.
