My background is in science, specifically biochemistry and microbiology. However one year worth of streaking petri dishes looking for faecal matter is more than enough for anyone!

While I primarily focus on .NET tools and technologies, I have a good deal of experience outside of the Microsoft world. When not developing applications or tinkering with computers, I try to masquerade as a normal human being.

I have the same T-shirt as Marc Gravell, but alas for me, I'm afraid the similarities end there ;-)

Thanks so much for the really comprehensive answer, explaining why this is not some bad image manipulation. It's much appreciated!

@StanRogers thanks for the clarification, that's worth asking then I guess. Is there any etiquette I should be aware of prior to posting something like this? FWIW it is on a volunteer basis I'm doing the site...

And it is - I apologise for the n00b question! In GIMP click on Tools > Transform tools > Perspective

In GIMP (I don't have PS) is there a plugin or menu option to do what you describe?

@ElendilTheTall I am inclined to agree with you on the graphic designer suggestion. Because it's on a floor it has worn unevenly and discoloured in areas. Also the base floor tile is mottled which makes removing it just a bit harder. Thanks for your input - I really appreciate it.
