Yet another request for select with specific constraint

Recommended Posts

I'd like to be able to create a selection and have it constrain the selection rectangle to a specific aspect ratio.

I searched through the forum archive and noticed that this question has come up a couple of times before. The recommendation is to zoom in, create a selection rectangle of a small size in the desired aspect ratio, then resize that selection with the shift key to constrain the resize to keep the same ratio.

This does work, but creating the initial selection at the correct aspect ratio can be kind of difficult when I'm trying to create something that's 3.5" x 2.25" or some other weird configuration.

How about options for the selection tool that specify what aspect ratio to use when constraining? Would that be a hard thing to do?
