1 Ap­ply Con­tent-Aware Scale

Open your land­scape and then grab the Crop Tool from the Tool­box. Run the crop over the en­tire im­age and then drag the top of the crop bound­ing box up­wards to ex­tend the can­vas to ac­com­mo­date a larger sky and hit Re­turn. Now grab the Lasso Tool and make a rough se­lec­tion of the sky, then go to Edit>Con­tent-Aware Scale.

2 Stretch the sky and fill in the blanks

Pull the top mid­dle han­dle of the bound­ing box up­wards un­til it hits the top of the frame and hit Re­turn to set it down. If you have an un­ob­structed hori­zon your job is done, but in this ex­am­ple the se­lec­tion was a lit­tle awk­ward due to the hills on ei­ther side, which left us with gaps when we ex­tended the sky up. Don’t worry though, as these can eas­ily be fixed. Just grab the Spot Heal­ing Brush Tool from the Tool­box and paint over the blank ar­eas to fill them in.
