No, this isn't meant to provide a manual cropping dialog. Instead the two
options should do the following:

* Crop (maybe a better name is Fill): The image should fill the whole slide
area while keeping the aspect ratio. So part of the image might be invisible
because it's out of the slide area
* Fit: The image should use all available space in the slide area, but should
not stretch larger than it. So some blank space might show up with this option.
This is already implemented with the "Keep Aspect Ratio" option.

Hope this clears things up a little?
