Simpler way to Crop Photos
There should really be a tool to crop photos by selection (maybe by double clicking on it and using the control points) but it took me a while just to figure out that i have to mask by shape just to crop a photo.
We’ve begun working on an easier way to crop your images without using an image mask and will be releasing this in an upcoming release!

Use InDesigns crop, resize and masking ability, works like a charm :)

Often when designing in UXD I am modifying an existing product screenshot. It would be great if I could 'split' a given image by either horizontal or vertical axis so I could shift the legacy design apart to accommodate the new elements. Currently I have to take two different screenshots and manually align/crop them into position. This is basically a workflow optimization for working with existing product designs.
Being able to edit the position of the image being cropped would be enormously useful. It seems like it's using similar behavior to background-size: cover (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/background-size), and the other behaviors available on the web are needed (contain, custom, etc).
