This isn't at all off-topic. Designing for the Web in Photoshop or any
similar tool is very much on-topic. thelist tends to have a far larger
percentage of programming/database related threads, but more people asking
design related questions should even that up a bit.

I encourage anyone else with design related questions to jump in too.

Select your rectangle layer. Hit CTRL-T (to transform), and use the
modifiers (SHIFT, ALT, and CTRL).

SHIFT will constrain your adjustments by ratio. ALT will maintain the focus
on a central point. And CTRL will let you play around with a single corner.

What you need to do is hold all three and drag a corner around until you get
the effect you're after. Let me know how you go.
