I want to wrap a label to a blank bottle, to make it look 3D. I have got Photoshop CS5.5 Standard - NOT Extended with the 3D menu option. I've tried looking online but the advice is all about that 3D menu!

Is there another technique I can use in the Standard Edition to achieve the same thing? Bollocks to Adobe for removing the 3D filter and making me pay extra!

Tried using the warp and perspective-type tools?
Don't ask me about them, I only know they exist.

Thanks for the suggestion, chainsaw. I actually decided to try Illustrator's Map Art function. It took a couple of goes to create a cylinder the same width as my bottle, and get the perspective the same, but it worked in the end. 

I used a contrasting colour for my cylinder so that when I pasted the final object into Photoshop I could easily select and delete the cylinder leaving only my warped label. 

Not seamless, but it did the trick :)
