One of the biggest reasons I've purchased this media manager was to for management of some high resolution image uploads that some users place on our site, that have not been optimized for web.
Unfortunately, I find these high resolution images almost impossible to manage with this component. The edit view allows high resolution images to extend far behind the live edit view finder, making resizing and cropping very difficult.
My suggestion would be to never allow the image to extend beyond the active view, and include a slider in the resize function which can be used to convert the image to a lower resolution. I also think it would be helpful to display the new file size as well as the image resolution.

- Open a high resolution image in Ark Media manager and attempt to resize or crop it. Only a small portion of the image will be visible in the viewfinder.
