1. Open and converted to RGB
2. Duped the background layer
3. Repaired it with the healing brush and its sibling (Patch tool)
4. Applied “Remove grain” filter
5. Duped fixed layer
6. Applied “Equalize” command
7. Selected MULTIPLY for that layer with the opacity level set to 70
8. Applied “Remove ALL mask”
9. Applied “Gradient” to hide the top portion of the picture because it was to dark
10. Moiré was very persistent to whatever filters I used to kill it, so I used a lot of dodging and burning to somewhat smooth it out.
11. I duped that layer again and applied “Gaussian Blur” at 19
12. Added noise at 3
13. Applied “Hide ALL” mask
14. Revealed it only partially to smooth out the more yet again and other areas that needed smoothing.
15. Repaired the face and hair
16. Converted to Duoton to create a Sepia look
17. The damn moiré is still there but at least not as prominent.


PS. As always, I apologize if I skipped any steps along the way.

Hey Balky, nice job on the moire. I found this to be a real tough one. Also big thumbs up on your description.
