How to change crop aspect ratio?

Can't figure out how to do this simple task that I took for granted on my old Huawei.

 

I take most of my photos in landscape 4:3 ratio. Occasionally I'll decide to a make a 3:4 portrait crop of one so I go into the editor, tap the crop icon and select 3:4 to ensure I get the ratio right. Except I just can't find that option in the Note 20 Ultra photo editor just a 4:3 one which is the original aspect ratio. Does this feature exist and if so how do I get it to appear?

 

I know I could just download another editor to do this but I like using the built in one for convenience.

 

Thanks.

to solve that you need to rotate the phone and then select 4:3, after that re rotate it and you will be cutting in 3:4

Thanks for replying. That sounds perfectly reasonable but alas when I just tried it the 3:4 crop option never appeared unless I'm missing a trick?

 

Annoyingly rotating the image within the editor doesn't work either because although the 3:4 crop option does then appear, because the image has also been rotated the 3:4 crop STILL comes out as a 4:3 crop!

Hi,

 

I have the same issue and I wanted to know if you found a solution ?

 

Best regards,

No, never did find a solution, sorry. Very disappointing.

Stumbled upon a stupidly silly solution just now. 

Manually crop the picture. Eyeball it to a portrait like ratio. The option will change from 4:3 to 3:4. Then just pinch to max zoom out, and center the picture.

Still can't believe they haven't fixed this issue but also grateful for your reply. I confess I was sceptical but just tried your suggestion and it actually worked! Thanks very much!
