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!

It is literally absurd that this is not a simple, table-stakes action in XD.
I see that Adobe "began working on" a way to crop images in 2018 and here we are in 2020 jumping through hoops to do a simple crop in a UI tool.
The only reason anyone uses this tool is because institutions force it upon designers who know they can get things done quicker, easier, and tighter with any one of the competitive tools on the market.
Shame on you Adobe for positioning XD as anything but what it still is: a half-baked, non-user-centered beta of a UI tool (do not even get me started how ill-suited it is for actual UX).
