    Is there a way to create a custom crop in photoshop that can be saved and then loaded back for a future image ?

    When I say a custom crop I do not mean straight edges, random edges.

    It sure what you mean. You can set crop presets, but I get the feeling you are after something different. Maybe you mean a shaped mask that you can apply to lots of images?

    Say for example I want to crop the shape of the outline of a house. Can I save that house outline as a crop preset and then load it and use it on another image ?

    Yes, you and create an action to do that. Start recording an action, create you’re crop then stop recording and save the action. You can then run it on any image.

    So your saying I can open the hose image - create a selection whilst recording an action, complete the selection then save the action.

    Open another image and run that action and it will load that earlier created selection ?

    should do. you have to watch layers with actions. I have recorded some on edits that have a non flat layer stack and they don't like it with a different layer stack sometimes.

    You could do this with an action, but if it's just a singular colour punch, I would probably make a custom brush?

    Create a custom vector shape then you can make it whatever size you want without pixelation.
    You can also use it as a vector mask so you don't have to delete the surrounding pixels.

    The easy way is to use 'Select>Save Selection', then 'Select>Load Selection' on subsequent images. You can save different selections with different names.
