Direct Links (URL) to Cropped Images

We create a lot of cropped images using the cropped presets rule.  It would be nice to be able to send a direct link to one of the cropped images the same way we can all other assets

Content Types / Metadata Orders / Sharing

Right now the crops are modeled as additional files in the record of the master image. We can only provide sharing links to the master record. We see more and more requests and needs coming which would require the crop to become its own content item, with a relation to the original content item of the master image. So we probably need to change this some time in the future. This hasn't been roadmapped yet.

In Review

Would you want to share a download link so that crop would immediately start downloading, or would you want the link to transfer you to the UI of the record?

I had not thought about the immediate download.  Not sure that's relevant to us, but a neat idea.  For now, I would say it should transfer us to the specific cropped asset.
