To be really complete now, I also created a new JIRA issue: CB-10033 <>.

As we need a flexible, sizable rectangle, we implemented that in our fork of the camera plugin.

the (then also useless) view of the photo with the "Retake"- and "Use Photo"-buttons, but
instead offers a resizable cropping rectangle (with "Redo" and "Save“).
