I want to give my screenshots a 3d, realistic photograph effect.

Something like this:

enter image description here

I tried using Skew but it didn't bring me desired result. Can anyone help me through?

Are you having trouble with the shape, the texture, the lighting? There's quite a bit at work in the screenshot you posted; where are you stuck? – Ryan Sep 30 '12 at 1:27
I have created a pixelated texture which brings the screen effect but my main problem lies in transforming the image into that realistic perpective. I did try to achieve achieve the effect using skew but the image didn't look as realistic. – rzr Oct 1 '12 at 7:44
Anyone getting here through Google might have more success looking at the answers to another question (and the one linked on that question) in case this question didn't solve your issue. – Johannes May 14 '13 at 21:45

try using the vanishing point filter. Check out this Vanishing Point Tutorial

maybe it will give you a general idea of how you need to implement it for your project.
