Is there an application where I can crop an image then resize it into custom dimensions?

I would like to crop it like with the built in Command+Shift+4 , then in a window I could select the dimensions.

So is there an app for this?

But of course Preview!

To resize: Choose Tools > Adjust Size, then enter the size you want to change the image to, then click OK

To crop: Click the "Select", then click and drag to select the area of the image that you want to retain. Next, choose Tools > Crop or press Command-K. If you crop too much, you can press Command-Z or choose Edit > Undo to undo the crop.
