Switch Crop Orientation in Lightroom

Today I just have a quick and easy tip to share, but I think that it will save a lot of time. Whenever you are cropping an image in Lightroom the crop box stays oriented in the same way the image is. For example, if your image is in the landscape orientation then the crop box will be as well. To change this you could click and drag a new box, but that would mess up your placement if you have already started editing. So here is the tip: press the "X" key. That will change the orientation of the crop box while still keeping it in the same location and at the same size.
