When I ask to crop an image with aspect ratio and specified resolution, the imposed crop frame fills the image in one dimension (say vertical) and is centered on the image cropping off the two side equally horizontally.  I can't find a way to move the image right or left so the crop covers one side of the image more than the other.  Is this possible?

I’m not sure if this is what you’re running into, but the Crop tool rectangle can have two states and they work slighly differently. If you are using another tool and switch to the Crop tool, you can’t reposition the image behind the crop rectangle because the tool is set up for adjusting the rectangle. But if you press Enter or Return, that will switch it to the second Crop rectangle state (Crop Preview), which does let you pan the image behind the crop rectangle.
