crossposting this, it seems better in the kde-imaging list.

I mean something like in the attached screenshots, that is, you pick a
picture, then get a rectangle with the specified ratio, and possibly a
golden rule grid, and then can resize and move that rectangle over the
picture to determine your target crop.  That crop is then displayed in
the next step, if you don't like it, you go back and start over. A
very nice and intuitive interface for this step in the canon product
