You don't need to convert to Lab to get access to the color information. Since it's in many layers, simply make a merged duplicate of your image into a new layer, do the gaussian blur on that, set the blend mode to color. For optimum results, I'd erase or mask this blurred color layer everywhere except where there's moire--no sense in blurring the color information in parts of the image where it's not needed.

Pure, I would like to retract part of what I said above regarding RGB. If you wish to get rid of the Moire in RGB, duplicate the layer. Then do Image>Adjust>Channel Mixer. Set the Red to 40%, Green to 50%, and Blue to 10% AND check the monochrome box. Now fill with color as noted in a number of posts above.
Regards, Murray

You could try Russell Browns way.
Scroll down to "Moiré Go Away" it looks very good and describes exactly what you want to do using channels, so you don't loose any pixels.
I have not tried it myself but as soon as the occasion arises I will.

Hope this helps

i will try that later, what you said in the last 3 posts..
had to upload the image to my client. i left a few uncolored curved lines, but the moiré color is gone anyway – thanks due your help

yes the moire is really good to remove. but then there are weird curves, where the moire are stayed/have stayed on. like bezier curves in grey. i cant explain, but i tried so much to remove it. i had to dodge and burn it manually. a few stayed, but i can improve next week or so.
