    Do you mean expanding/shrinking the selection area?
    Try Select > Modify

    Once you have your selection, click on Edit / Transform / Scale. Then hold the Shift key while you drag in or out from one of the corners. If you drag form either the sides, or top/bottom, you will distort the image.

    I am curently building Photoshop tutorials at graphicdesignrx.com. Feel free to suggest a tutorial you would like to see.

    It depends how you want to change the selection. IF you want to do it manually, bric002 is right in terms of Edit/Transform/Scale etc - but if you want it to be precise, then go to Select > Modify > Contract/Expand.

    also under select / transform selection, if you hold alt while dragging a control point it will scale the opposite side in conjunction with the one you are moving. kind of like a 2D transformation.
