Description

Consider adding 7:5 as one of the available aspects to select in the "crop and rotate" module. At least in the US, this is a standard print ratio.

For photo prints? Really?

Do you have any references, so we can read up on this?

Yes, for photo prints. I didn't know that was specific to the US, but it is quite common here. Everywhere prints in 5x7 and there are lots of frames available in that size. Here are some popular US photo printing sites and their sizes:

The other sizes on those photo sites may be a bit more obscure, but 5x7 is available everywhere in the US at least.

Also, check out this video of Lightroom. The aspect ratios shown in the dropdown (halfway through the video) are the common ones in the US.

We basically don't want to clutter the presets too much. You can always enter any custom aspect ratio you'd like though.

That said, 7:5 seems common enough:
