That is probably phrased pretty badly. Here is what I am thinking. If I make a map of say, I chain of islands and then want to make more detailed maps of each island in the chain, is there a good way to get the shape of each island and enlarge it without losing all of the image quality? I was trying to figure out how to do it with the paths, but that way seems to either be sloppy if I try to make a path a selection or tedious by having to manually click around the landmass a thousand times. I also have no idea how to scale a path or import it into a new file. I'm sure one of you wizards knows how to do this, or if the process should be done the other way around by making the detailed maps then shrinking them down and merging them together.
