You can also use the Free Transform mode to skew an image. So let's bring open the Free Transform mode. Command+T or Ctrl+T to put the active layer in Free Transform mode. Again by the default behavior, if you just grab a corner handle you are going be arbitrarily scaling that. So to skew it instead, hold down Command+Shift on the Mac or Ctrl+Shift on Windows. This time I'm going to go from a middle handle up here at the top because I want to skew it along the horizontal axis here. So holding down Command+Shift/Ctrl+ Shift lets me skew and distort the image that way. If I do it from the corner handle, I can skew from the corner as well.
It looks kind of funky to do that. So typically skew most of the time is done along one axis. Skew it vertically or you can skew it horizontally. Again when you are happy with the results just hit the Enter key to apply that and undo, Command+Z or Ctrl+Z, to get back to where we started from.
