Yes, so if you do that you'll need to calculate the final dimensions
yourself, based on the cropped dimensions and how much the original
image was rescaled to meet the original aspect ratio.

The final aspect ratio won't necessarily be the same, because you
cropped the image. It may be close, or way off. If you want to do that,
you should read this section in the docs and the parts above it to gain
the proper context.
