    I really like this plugin a lot. I was initially disappointed because it wasn’t straightforward to use with Elementor, but I figured out two workarounds that allows the plugin to work flawlessly with Elementor’s dynamic features.

    1) Use the ACF Cropped Image Field in any Elementor Post or CPT Widget Name your Image Aspect Ratio Crop field
    _thumbnail_id
    in order to replace the default WordPress featured image / thumbnail with your perfectly cropped acf field.

    2) Use the ACF Cropped Image Field Dynamically in all other applications Create an extra CPT that uses standard ACF image fields with the exact same field name as the Aspect Ratio Crop field on the actual post type. When building your page or templates, select the image field on the other post type to call the field.

    God, this makes me so happy. I really love this aspect ratio cropping feature.
