Vuesmart remembers what your last scan parameters were, so you don't
necessarily have to reset the crop marks.  In theory, if you have enough
memory, you can use vuesmart to scan an entire 5 image negative strip
(perhaps even longer) at 2400 dpi, then split up the frames in photoshop.
I scan strips like this at lower resolutions in order to make contact
prints.  Works great, I can scan all 7 strips and have them pasted together
in photoshop in about 5 minutes.
