    two circles that move together


    That's how the clone stamp tool works. The two are locked together and move together. Here's the relevant text from the documentation:



    Note that the source point moves in the same path as the tool when cloning starts. This results in the tool path being copied as a stripe rather than just the source point.




    If you're trying to copy the same source region to a number of destinations, try using copy/paste or the paint brush (for solid colors). 

  2. Hey SamIAm - welcome to the forum :)


    2500mm x 400mm equals 98.4252in x 15.748in


    98.4 x 300 DPI = 29520 pixels

    15.75 x 300 DPI = 4725 pixels.


    Use Image > Canvas Size to open the dialog shown below.


    Under Pixel size, make your Width  29520 pixels and the Height  4725 pixels. Set the Resolution to 300 pixels/inch. Ignore everything else.




    BTW I'm sure you're going to be astonished how big this canvas is going to be. I'm not unconvinced an image 2.5m x 0.4m needs to be printed at that resolution. 300 DPI is printed-art sort of quality. A sign this size is bound to be viewed from a distance, so you could probably halve the resolution IMO.

  3. Your image has 3275 individual colors. However, I don't see any gray. This might give you a range of gray colors to choose from.


    Small test: I uniformly recolored a single sea 'cell' with a random gray-ish color (#939598). Then used the Magic Wand tool with tolerance =10% to select the recolored cell. I got a single selection of 13684 pixels (find the number in the Status Bar). Next I held down Shift (=Global Flood Mode) & reselected the same cell. The number of selected pixels was the same. I concluded that there are no colors with 10% tolerance of #939598. That means that color is safe to use.


    #2E5996 is another I found by the same method. How many new colors do you need?
