Add default cropping ratio for social share images
Facebook, LindedIn and Twitter do have the same aspect ratio for images of shared URL's. So it would be great if the default aspect ratio of the cropping tool is already providing the 1.91 / 1 ratio.
[TASK] Added default cropping ratio for social media images
Most of the social networks use the 1.91:1 aspect ratio for images that
belong to the page that is shared.
Now og:image and twitter:image will be rendering an image with a 1.91:1
ratio by default.

Research and my suggestion¶
According to https://blog.bufferapp.com/ideal-image-sizes-social-media-posts and many other sites and the opengraph website I would suggest the following aspect ratios supported out of the box to minimize integration work for every TYPO3 project:
based on the following overview:
# Facebook 1.91:1 Sharing images: 1,200 x 628 pixels 1.91:1 Sharing links with an image: 1,200 x 628 pixels 9:16 Sharing Stories: 1,080 x 1,920 pixels* # Instagram 1:1 Sharing square images: 1,080 x 1,080 pixels 1.91:1 Sharing horizontal images: 1,080 x 566 pixels 4:5 Sharing vertical images: 1,080 x 1,350 pixels 9:16 Sharing Stories: 1,080 x 1,920 pixels* # Twitter 16:9 Sharing a single image: 1,200 x 675 pixels 16:9 Sharing multiple images: 1,200 x 675 pixels 1.91:1 Sharing links with an image: 800 x 418 pixels # LinkedIn 3:2 Sharing images to Company Page or personal profile: 1,104 x 736 pixels 1.91:1 Sharing links with an image to Company Page or personal profile: 1,200 x 628 pixels # Pinterest 2:3 Sharing images: 800 x 1,200 pixels # Google+ 1.91:1 Sharing images or links with an image: 1,200 x 628 pixels # Snapchat 9:16 Sharing images: 1,080 x 1,920 pixels*
I will update the next patchset based on that research
