Make the crop tool so it can crop multiple pictures individually from the same scan with multiple pictures on it at the same time instead of one at a time. If this can be done maybe make it as an upgrade as well as new feature in a new Photoshop. I am using CS6. I have needed a crop tool that would this many times now.

I tried the Crop and Straighten, I do not thing it works that well. Had 6 pic on a page with separation between the pics, it crop 2 of them ok the other 4 it crop 2 at a time. Some of the pics that I want to crop are next to each other, there is no separation between the pics and I would like to pick and choose which pics I want to crop. I would like see it work like I crop a pic, hit the ctrl button crop another pic, ctrl button crop another one, and so on then be able to save all of the pics that I cropped. Thank you David

I've never had crop and straighten work with more than one photo on a scan. Is it supposed to?

yes, it crops and straightens all the photos on your scanner.

Thanks Chris, I just assumed it was by design as it performs terribly at this function. You have saved me a lot of time as I was trying to write a script to do this...

Now that I know this is supposed to crop multiple photos on a single bed, I have a tip that may help the OP. Keep using the tool on the output recursively until you have the result you want. Yes, feeding the result back through the automation will give you a different result (which is madness according to Einstein).
