The Snap To feature is also useful when performing actions such as cropping or drawing, if you want to snap to certain elements of an image.
While I like to turn off that feature when I need to make selections close to—but not touching— the edges of a canvas, it can be useful to leave it on in other cases. For example, the Snap To feature is available for snapping not only to a document's edges (or bounds), but also to its guides, grid, and slices. Photoshop 7 lets you turn each of these commands on and off independently, so you can effectively have your selections snap to the document guides, but not the grid.
