Do you know of Windows freeware that has the option to easily lock in a 3:2
or 4:3 aspect ratio for cropping?

I often create DIYs where it's nice to keep the cropped close photos at a
standard aspect ratio of what most smartphones use, which seems to be 4:3,
or to that of most 35mm cameras which seems to be 3:2 aspect ratio
https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/33713/most-common-aspect-r...

I generally crop in Irfanview because it's so very fast & super easy
(click, click, crop), but there is no way to lock the aspect ratio for that
crop to 4:3 in Irfanview, nor in Pinta, MS Paint, or Paint 3D freeware.

Microsoft Photos has an aspect ratio lock, but it's not easy to use as the
image is blacked out except for the crop area, where you slide the
underlying image about to crop.
