Default curved images

I have to fit square images into a film strip that bends. Does anyone have a good plan on how to make the images look curving and bending on the film strip? I have Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign on a Mac G5. I am (clearly) a beginner, but have a basic working knowledge of tools.
Thank you for your help!
Cheers,
Kalliope

I don't know how complicated you need this to be. But here are some possibilities for making the bends:

If you need help making the film strip (before it's bended), here's a plugin that might help: http://www.autofx.com/dreamsuite2/ef...filmstrip.html

Thank you Andrew. It looks like my approach was backwards; in trying to make the images fit the strip. I really appreciate your help.
