In other words, you expect the original to stay in the background overlaid by a "crop panel" that is used for the interaction. Fully agree with this enhancement request and would expect this for all modules. Additional, we should show the current size during crop to make pixel-perfect operations possible.

That would be the case after the desired image handling being uniformed.. Regina has stated that the specific Writer Image implementation should be removed an replaced with the more modern Draw/Impress/Calc implementation.
