    Nice tip, but I think it is even easier. As long as you have both images open, you can begin to crop your second image. Open the “Crop Image Size & Resolution” dialog box, and for the “Source”, directly select the first image. Very nice!

    There is no need to go back and forth between two images because we have option to choose in Crop Image Size and Resolution from Source drop-down list name of any open image. Photoshop will automatically populate fields for size and resolution picked from chosen image, so one can use mention command with image which want to crop without to switch back and forth.

    How nice of Adobe to take something that was super fast and easy in previous versions and make it substantially more complicated and time-consuming. What an “improvement.” UGH!!! Front image is something I use very very often in preparing blog posts, and this has made my workflow so much longer. Please tell Adobe to bring back the Front Image button!
