We also wanted to keep the current ratio the same when cropping down the image. So we made certain that the Lock Aspect Ratio button was moved to the right and was highlighted in green.

You can make further adjustments by clicking the center of the crop box to activate the sizing handles. Click + drag one corner handle in or out to resize if needed.

To move the crop box around, place your mouse over the image and it will change to directional arrows. Now click + drag to reposition the image. A blue line vertically and horizontally will appear as guides to help you center the crop. We centered our image using the vertical guide line.
