[need a design tip] - I have an idea in mind, but not sure how to implement

    Hi!

    I want to take a 2d flat image, and angle it slightly, perhaps with
    some kind of frame.... but the core thing I want to do is maneuver it
    more in a 3d fashion. Just think of a DVD case photo standing upright
    at a slight angle. I want to map a photo to look perspectively
    proportional over it and tweak as necessary I hope to find some
    tutorial or plug-in (free ware or shareware is great) to get me
    started to achieve this effect. I am working with Photoshop 7.0.
    Thank you for any ideas or pointers. :) Best wishes, Rebecca

    The transform tool provides one way do this. Add the image as a layer, type
    ctrl-A and ctrl-T Hold down ctrl, and line up the corners. Add a drop
    shadow and/or surface reflection for good measure and you're golden
