To achieve your requirement you can create a custom SaveImageCommand and override its ExecuteOverride method. There you can check if the executing tool is CropTool. In this case, avoid committing the tool. You can assign the custom command to the RadImageEditorUIcontrol via its SaveCommand property. I've attached a small example showing this. I hope it helps.
