Hi Tanel,

sure you can easily adapt the image NodeType and remove the properties 
you don't need or override them with select box of fixed settings for 
example. That was also possible in TYPO3 CMS although a bit more 
complicated than now. I think it makes sense to offer a default that 
allows freedom and then let the integrators reduce the amount of freedom 
their users should have. If that is the case for all of your customers 
you can easily create your own default NodeType package and just use that.

Also I think we will see basic presets for the most common CSS 
Frameworks in the future, so there the presets will probably be different.

I like the idea of crop presets or generally image processing presets, 
that would indeed be a nice feature for the future.
