This should be fixed in Lightroom CC/Lightroom 6.

In addition if you move between images using the arrow keys the crop orientation unexpectedly changes!

I'm seeing this too! Very difficult to work with LR5 now.

I can't reproduce either one. I've done tons of cropping lately. This is on Windows 7 64.

it ssems to happen when you are in development module and you navigate between images in filmstrip using the arrow keys

Had this exact problem today. An portrait image cropped to landscape. Every time you navigated to it in the film strip - it would revert to portrait again. i.e. it would perform it's own automated crop and put that in history. A program with a mind of it's own - not good.

There is also another bug with cropping (I don't know if it's a independend bug):

When you crop a landscape area out of a portrait image and copy paste the cropping (Ctrl+Shift+C/+V) to another image the target picture often gets cropped falsely orientated (in the above example you may get a portrtait cropped area)

Same problem here since upgrading to LR5. Very frustrating -- it will even happen to images I've edited long before if I happen to scroll through them as I work on other images in the same project!

The images randomly change crop position when I navigate away and navigate back- it seems to happen most often on rotated crops.

The only way I've been able to work around this is by immediately exporting the photos that I am having cropping issues with. This significantly slows down my work flow. Does anyone know if this will be addressed in an upcoming update? The 5.2 update didn't seem to help, and I no longer have an old version I can go back to for the time being!

You can undo the crop change (Cmd-Z), and then your original crop will return (for the time being until you navigate through again!).

I am having this issue too. It is not just cropping but other develop setting too, however.

Same problem as others have noted. Crop the image, navigate away - come back via the film strip and the image reverts to the previous crop state. Cmd+Z brings it back to how it should be - however, as soon as you navigate away and come back again - same thing happens. It's stuck in a loop.

Only happened with one image for me so far. Only temp solution was to save the image as a PSD in PS and then keep the final version as a PSD. Really annoying though.

I have the same issue of crops reverting - with Mac Pro and OS X.7

Also some other issues in Develop module where I batch a group of images and the next one beyond the batch also changes.

Also sluggish behavior once I've been working a while with tools - really bogs down.
Hope LR 5.2 solves some of these issues!

I'm having this issue as well. For me it seems to be limited to JPG files and not my CR2 files. Very irritating when browsing back and forth in Develop module.

Anyone know if this has this been reported as an official bug? Tracking #? Seems like a long time to have this type of bug still unresolved.

Jeff,
Are you running LR5.2? I have not seen this issue since the update.

Regards,
Josh
