    Hey all -- I have a Lightroom cropping workflow I'd love to be able to do. Maybe there is a way to do this and I just don't now the magic key shortcuts, thus this post.

    So I often have a point of interest on which I would like to keep centered in my crops. While I can option-drag on crop handles to crop to center, sometimes I'd like the ability to choose a new center registration point with a click on the desired point -- anyone know if this is possible in LR?

    Suggest you take the question to the Lightroom Forums. Lots of LR and PS experts there. Lightroom Forums

    IF you are cropped to a fixed aspect ratio, you can just "grab" the crop square and move it to desired location and the grids will help you to center or align as desired. Not sure if that is exactly what you are asking or not.

    Try this:
    1. drag the crop rectangle to a rather small area
    2. center the crop on the point you want to keep centered
    3. Option-drag a corner of the crop rectangle
