[Bug] Resulting ambiance does not resemble crop

When cropping a picture for an ambiance in-phone, the resulting background picture should match the chosen crop. Currently when creating the ambiance from a larger picture, only the center part of the given picture used is used without visual feedback on what will actually end up in the ambiance. This also happens when using the 'ambiance crop mode' and makes creating one in the phone very fiddly.

Really difficult if not impossible to get a background that you want by using "Create ambience". There's an odd zoom applied to the pictures when those are used as backgrounds. Nothing prepares the user for the actual outcome when, as Sahry put it, there's no visual feedback available when creating ambiences.

Took two example screenshots of what I wanted to see on the background (left side pic) and what I actually got on the background (right side pic):

Also, the picture editor's crop functionality seems to offer square aspect ratio to both square and ambience. Shouldn't ambience have something more closer to rectangle?

The ambience is technically a square because it rotates with the device (in applications which rotate).

There will be improvements for the cropping feature in the upcoming release.

Can one of those improvements please be the option to NOT rotate the background (if the phone is in landscape orientation)?

This will allow uncropped images to be used as backgrounds
