The goal is a simple to use tool on Windows that has a GUI that is easier
to use than is the slow and cumbersome slide-under-the-bridge aspect ratio
GUI of Microsoft Photos.

All that is needed is a simple crop, that has a button to restrict it to a
given aspect ratio.

The Gimp, never an easy to use tool, for example, has an aspect ratio tool.

But the goal is a simpler to use Windows free aspect ratio crop, at least
simpler (and faster) than Microsoft Photos or The Gimp.
