How to disable snap-to-border in Photoshop crop tool?

When slightly trimming the borders of an image, the crop tool either snaps to the image border or moves too far in. The only way to achieve a middle-point crop is to zoom in quite a bit. This is time consuming, especially if you need to slightly crop all four sides. Is there a way to disable the snap-to-border feature and get a continuous crop adjustment?

The Crop tool and Marquee have the option of the cropping border snap on to the edges of your image. If you don’t want any snapping to happen, press Shirt + Ctrl+; (win) or Shift+Cmd+; (mac). This turns off all snapping such as snap to the document boundary, snap to rulers and snap to guides. If you only want to turn off Crop or Marquee snapping to the edges of your document, choose View > Snap To and choose Document Bounds. See image:
