Ease of use of the "userpic factory"

Ease of use of the "userpic factory"

Short, concise description of the idea
Change the userpic factory so that it is easier to select the exact area of the photo you want as your userpic.

Full description of the idea
The userpic factory was a great idea and I had thought they should do something like that before it was on there, however I find it incredibly annoying to use. When you click to select your area, the box should start exactly where the cursor is, not above the cursor like it does because obviously the user is going click in the area that is what they want their userpic to be. For example, I was trying to select the lower left hand portion of a picture, so I clicked in the lower left hand corner, yet the box was created in the center on the left hand side. If I had wanted to select the center, I would have clicked in the center. So, it should be changed so that you can just click and select the exact area you want as your userpic, starting at the cursor.

An ordered list of benefits
  • It will be easier to use.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I don't see anything negative that could come of this change.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • I'm not smart enough to know how they created the userpic factory in the first place, so I don't know how to change it, but I am sure the people who created it would.
