I would expect such functionality in the print wizard. It's not there at 
present, though.

The print wizard has a screen in which you can position images that don't 
match the aspect ratio of the chosen print layout. Currently, it only allows 
to move an image around. It would be great if this same screen would allow to 
resize the image (effectively cropping it).

Just my 2 cents.
