crop lines interfering seeing the edge properly

This was a bit less of a problem in the past but now with my latest photoshop update and the large handles now on the crop marquee, I'm struggling sometimes to see the absolute edge of the image unless I zoom in. When we're scanning film, we try to include as much of the image as possible but that means that scans often need to be cropped a bit after to get rid of tiny bits of frame line or film rebate. I have trouble seeing tiny slivers or frameline because the white crop marqee is covering them.  When editing thousands of images, these little things become frustrations and reduce the speed I can work.

Maybe try to use Marque Tool (M) and then Image>Crop Command?
Somtimes is less frustrating and easier to do

Cool!  That might just do it. I gave it a try after setting a shortcut key for the corp command. I think that might solve my issue. I'll know after a few hours of editing if it sets in and can become muscule memory.
