    Just upgraded to CS4, and realized that the crop tool isn't bound by the borders of a photo, like in CS3. The way it's set right now, I can crop to outside of the photo's boundaries, which I hate. I need to be able to have to crop stop at the edges no matter how far I throw my curser past it.

    TIA broman soldiers :coolugh:

    in cs3 there is a toggle for snapping in general, hold down ctrl while adjusting the crop bounds.

    you can try ctrl+a to select the entire image then the crop should snap to the 'dancing ants'

    you might also try playing with the ruler lines too

    I popped open my CS4 here at work and don't have the issue of being able to crop outside the doc boundaries. The only thing I can think of is View > Snap To > Make sure Doc Bounds is checked but I actually tried unchecking it, restarting PS and still couldn't crop outside the bounds =\

    My CS3 crops outside the boarders. It will snap to the boarder, but you can override by continuing to move outside until it figures out what your trying to do.

    If you're in full frame mode, you can move the crop box outside of the image borders no matter what version of PS you're using. Please esplain how this is different for you in cs4.
