I have a layer consisting of a video file. On top of that layer I've drawn a rectangular mask using the rectangle tool. Now I want that mask to be slightly bigger than what I initially drew. How do I do that? Using the selection tool and grabbing hold of a corner or a side of the mask just lets me move the mask around, not resizing it.

Double-click on the mask. The Free Transform box appears. Holding down the Ctl-Shift (Cmd-Shift Mac) keys, grab a corner to readjust size. You have to eyeball it.
