    Couple of points I wanted to give my opinion on.

    I'm not sure if this was is supposed to happen, but in your example, if you have the crop tool on and then you hit save, the saved image will take the image inside crop rectangle and not the original full image. This most happens when the crop tools turns off it applies the crop before it saves.

    In my opinion, the crop tool should have an apply button. Instead of the user having to hit the crop button again (or hitting another button to apply the crop), the user would hit "apply crop" which would apply it. Hitting the crop button would simply turn off/on the tool.

    This would get around the fact it saves the cropped image.

    Thanks..great product ps.

    Hello Matt,

    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
