Cropping photos bug in People app

This came to light whilst trying to teach my mum how to use her new Jolla phone. If you try to create an avatar using an image from the gallery, after you press the '+' button when viewing the particular contact's details, you get taken to gallery. When you select an image you have the word 'Crop' at the top, as if it is a button to press (which it isn't). Once you have enlarged/reduced the photo and moved it around so the head is in the middle of that square box you then have to do something to accept the positioning. I would have thought with the word 'Crop' visible you'd press this, but pressing this isn't the trigger. You have to tap an area of the screen that has the photo in it. If you have shrunk the photo so much there is some of the background image peeping through under the word 'Crop', then pressing 'Crop' doesn't do anything as you are pressing on something that doesn't contain any part of the image. However, you get the impression pressing 'Crop' does crop the image if the picture is big enough to be lying underneath the word.
