Once you've selected something you can crop by using the Image->Crop To Selection menu command. Using the keyboard this is as quick as pressing Alt+I, and then P.

If you want to do a fixed aspect selection, you can use v2.5 and draw a selection to the asepect you want (pay attention to the status bar). For example, draw a 60x40 rectangle to do 6x4 (drawing a 6x4 rectangle makes things too small to work with). Once you've done that, switch to the Move Selection tool (2nd row, 2nd column) and then drag the nubs to resize the selection while also holding down shift. Then reposition and crop as necessary.

You can also use the arrow keys to fine tune the size of the selection while you are drawing it. That makes it quite a bit easier.

Install the latest beta of v2.5. Select the area you want, then hit Alt+I and then P, which is the key combination for the Image menu followed by the Crop to Selection menu item.
