The Vanishing Point plug-in handles the chore of matching perspective for you.

  2. Filter > Vanishing Point.

    Vanishing Point Tool

  3. Identify a wall and click all four corners as show below.

    Note: The box should be Blue. If your box turns red you will need to try again or try dragging and adjusting the corner points.

  4. Choose the Create Plane tool and drag another wall.

    Note: Drag from the small white box on the right of the current plane.

  5. You can drag another wall by choosing the Create Plane tool.

    Drag out all the walls.

    You can drag out a floor plane by selecting the first Plane and using the Create Plane Tool and dragging from the bottom white square.

    Once you have this grid set up you can copy and paste images into Vanishing Point and match the perspective.

    Note: You can resize it using the Transform Tool ‘.
