Suppose I have an image or a document, provided in a high-quality PDF file. You can open and view it in a PDF viewer, but then it has a kind of static look: it's not something tangible, it's just an image on a screen. For instance, I have the following image:
To get a more realistic look and feel, to get something "tangible", I could print it (or paint it on a canvas) and take a picture of it from an angle, to give the object depth. For instance, I'd say the following photo gives the image above a more tangible, realistic feeling:
For documents, there's not as much depth as paper is flat, but still a photo of a printed document makes it a bit more "realistic", and allows you to put emphasis on part of the document. For instance, the following photo (taken from a relatively small angle) shows only part of some page, and the lighting, focus/blur of the camera etc. make the document look like a real object:
So the question is: given a (flat) image or text document like in the first image above, is it possible to transform it into a realistic (3D) "photo" of the image with Mathematica, like in the second and third images? If possible, it would be nice to be able to tune the lighting, focus, blur, etc. of the resulting output, and to make it look as realistic as possible.
