When using Crop node, there are some cases that users may want to just

the values for Left/Right/Up/Down are not very easy to decide accurately,
which means, either do it in externally, or try many times to get the nice
values. So, I may have a rough idea on this:

For example, this is a manual way to crop off the unwanted margin in the
Probably we could make it a bit "smarter" to decide values by guessing the
first (or last?) non-zero alpha pixel towards all four directions, so that
will make the workflow much more effective, something like this:
Below are other examples:
It can also be very useful when stretching / fitting needed during
composition. Just a very rough idea, and thanks for your attention.
