Getting Higher Resolution

I did a simple box and arrow diagram for a friend's book. The publisher has asked that the figure be at a higher resolution. What is the simplest way to do this in Pixelmator, starting with an existing diagram?

Hi Norman.
If the original diagram was drawn with vector tools inside Pixelmator then it's just a case of resizing the image with Image > Image Size. All the vector elements will scale with the image.
But I'm guessing that this isn't the case or you wouldn't be asking the question.
The publisher wants an image that will still look crisp and sharp at a higher resolution. My gut feel without seeing your image would be to redraw. Start with your image, resize to the pixel size that the publisher wants, lock the layer and use it as a template. When you're done, hide this layer.
There may be other ways to get this done, but this is my take.
Hope this helps.
