Bug Description

in the crop tool of the fast preview add this functionality:
doubleclick (left) sets the left (/upper/right/lower) crop side to the
leftmost "black" pixel, ie everything left from this line has at least
one colored pixel. a right doubleclick sets it such that there is at
least one colored pixel to the right and none to the left.

as double right click does not really exist, a shift left click could be implemented as this as well...

Double clicking and shift double clicking would make this a hidden feature, since it isn't obvious from looking at the preview that you can crop that way.
I think this would be best as button similar to Autocrop in current trunk. There could be a "Bounding crop" button next the Autocrop button. This would take the bounding box of the images as the crop rectangle, if that is what you really want.

My wish list for Crop in the fast preview:

- An 'outside' autocrop in addition to the existing 'inside' autocrop.
- A reset crop button (removing all cropping is currently quite fiddly).
- A centre crop button
- Shift-drag at the centre would move only horizontally or vertically similar to the Drag mode.
- Shift-drag on corners or edges would resize symmetrically about the centre.
- Ctrl-drag would preserve aspect ratio.
- A series of preset aspect ratios (1:1, 2:1, 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, 1.618:1, etc...).
- Some preset grid overlays for composition (rule of thirds, corner diagonals, golden ratio etc...).

For me it would be very useful to have:
- 'outside' autocrop
- crop of defined aspect ratio because i am usually cropping final panoramas to one of few aspects ratios.
