    Not something I do very often as the results are usually dire to terrible but in this case if I could figure out how to get rid of the neck blotches I'd be a lot happier.

    Any suggestions ? preferably simple?

    If you have access to PS CS5 (or later) then careful use of the content-aware fill tool can be effective, but it does require a little 'acclimatisation' before decent results are achieved.

    I had some success on the image that you posted, but I can't find a way to insert it into the thread... :redface::frown:

    If you use a Mac, Affinity Photo Beta is free right now and has a very good content aware tool. I think it's called infill. It's fairly easy to get the hang of it and there is a short video about it to help you.
