Thank you very much for the feedback. We are planning to improve the overall user experience of RadImageEditor to address usability issues like this.
In the current version our goal was to achieve very quick and easy editing of images in RadRichTextBox (or other controls) - for example you can just open the image editor from the crop toolbar button in RadRichTextBox select the cropping rectangle and click ok to actually crop the image in the editor. And this is why we did not find the need to have more buttons for this simple operation. We will however review this approach.
Let us know if you have any other suggestions.
All the best,
the Telerik team
