Okay, there has to be an easy answer to this. When using the crop tool, I might want to just crop one or two pixels from a side, but when I get to within about 10 pixels, it snaps to the original border. I don’t want to crop to the original border … that is why I have the crop tool out.

Is there some way to turn this annoying snap off?

Thanks all. That has annoyed me for some time. Dunno why I didn’t think of pressing ctrl. You would think that 15 years of PShop experience would give me a clue.

I know the feeling. Nowadays it’s not only what I don’t know but what I did know and forgot! 😉
