I'm missing something here. With the Size/Resolution dialogue and Resample Image/Don't Resample Image what's the purpose in having the ability to crop or vice versa? Are you still getting the same image area by not cropping and just using Resample to force another output size? If it turns out being 12x18 there's few picture frames I've seen that would accommodate that size. I'm more use to 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, etc.
If for the purpose of web posting I guess it doesn't matter but in choosing a size for making prints it would seem it would.
