Turns out you can recover the uncropped version even after saving the cropped version. It uses time machine:
Technically, that's Versions.
The earlier versions of the file (actually, just the changed parts) are stored in a hidden system folder on your Mac. That's where the Versions browser looks first.
Depending on what it finds there, it will also look in Time Machine backups if necessary, if you use Time Machine and the backup disk is available.
