How do I increase the spacing between two lines (or leading) in a paragraph in Photoshop?

What OS, what version of Photoshop? It would help if you would be more specific, like the tool you're using or post a screenshot –  Ivo Flipse Feb 10 '10 at 9:51

From this link:

There are two types of formatting: Character (which can apply to one or more characters) and Paragraph (which always applies to one or more paragraphs). You can find these settings in the Options bar (when the Text tool is selected in the Tool palette) or in the Character and Paragraph palettes.

formatting

Leading (“ledding”) determines the amount of space between lines in a paragraph. (...) If you want the leading to be consistent throughout a paragraph, you should either select every character in the paragraph before you set the leading in the Character palette, or you should apply the leading while the text layer is selected in the Layers palette (but no text on the layer is selected).

Never lose an occasion to put freehand circles. –  Gnoupi Feb 10 '10 at 10:00

You may have to toggle the Character & Paragraph panels in order for them to appear. They weren't displayed by default for me, even when having the Text tool selected. –  Mark Feb 12 '13 at 15:58
