Convert Isometric View into 2D

So I have a shot of an abject from the side and slightly from above. Is there some trick to converting it into a 2D image that I'm not aware of? The other problem is the fact that I think my projection is perspective, i.e. it's like a camera would take a shot, not the way CAD programs work. So everything gets smaller the further away you get form the camera.

Specifically, I'm talking about a profile. In other words, I have a picture of a profile of an object.

Maybe you could post the image, or something similar with the question? Based on the written description I don't understand what you have, or what you need.

My best guess at understanding would have me suggest using the Perspective Crop tool in Photoshop. It can help correct some perspective issues.

I'm trying to go from something like this mosquito bomber in 3D to 2D plans like the F16. So I'm trying to convert a 3D model into a 2D one. Although my parts aren't as extremely angled as the mosquito. Mosquito would be quite difficult to reproduce I think.

Step 1 will be to make an accurate 3D model of the Mosquito.
Step 2 is making the required section, and detail views to create the 2D drawing(s).

Going directly from an isometric image file as shown, to the 2D drawings as shown is not something which can be done with the press of a button, or even several.
A talented Artist might be able to draw the 2D work "by eye" from the isometric image.
It comes down to the constraints of accuracy, time, talent, and budget.

Can you elaborate on the perspective crop tool in photoshop?

Perspective crop could help get the image looking more straight if it were off by a small amount, but it will not convert an isometric view into a plan view.

This link shows an example.

Ah yep I think I see, yer I think it's not the right tool for the job. My image is definitely more perspective in nature as you described it.
