The easiest way to do this is still by hand. To avoid too much "as-you-think" perspective there are a few things you can do:

  • Start transforming with the perspective tool and make corrections with the free transform afterwards.
  • Take a picture of a slightly turned paper (e.g. business card) and then match the corners with your shot, essentially imitating the perspective.
  • Ideally, do this with a SmartObject and every file you will drop into the SmartObject will have the exact same perspective.

Good luck
