Like this: http://www.bigstockphoto.com/photo/view/2591890

I have a flat screenshot and want to add some perspective but when I drag the corners to change the shape of the rectanlge into a trapazoid (or whatever it's called) the image always looks skewed. :(

ANyone know of an article or tool whcih I can use to give a flat image some 3D perspective?

Don't know any article, but this is how I would do it in Photoshop:
1) Take image
2) Edit -> Transform -> Perspective: move bottom reference point to the right and right reference point up
3) Edit -> Transform -> Skew: move both top right and bottom right reference points closer to each other
4) Edit -> Transform -> Scale: scale image by x axis

Steps:

Result:
Image
