What camera, what was the custom WB you used, was the dress in full sun, what do skin tones look like? Late sun is much warmer than daylight and the colour temp can change quite quickly as the sun gets lower. But none of this should cause more than a colour tweak in post. Before you spend money, run your monitor through this in the lighting conditions under which you usually edit and adjust accordingly http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/



I have saved the website to my favourites and well test my monitor properly tomorrow. frown
 
I've tried the white balance on auto and then changed it to a custom white balance using a grey card. The young lady is Asian looking and I would say that her skin tones are fairly accurate. On the bridge the dress does look red. But when I took to the open grass to photograph my model next to a gentleman who just happened to be practising with his violin, I noticed that her dress had definitely changed orange. I think the problem may well be that I forgot to add another custom white balance now that I was out in the open sun. laugh

Yes the dress was out in the full sun.

The model has just corrected the colour for me using colour inhancer on her mobile phone.
I’m sorry about the white jacket with ties at the back. My doctor says I’ve made excellent progress and I will be released from Broadmoor on Tuesday; fancy a shoot on Wednesday!?

If you use lab mode in photoshop the a channel gives you close control of the reds.

I use Corel Paint Shop Pro 2 - I've been able to get the dress to look red but unfortunately the process of am using  doesn't do much for the rest of the image. 

Thank you frown

You should be able to mask the effect to only apply to the dress.

indeed, or even by choosing the exact colours you change you can often isolate things by colour alone. However the OP is using Paint Shop Pro which I only recall from a couple of decades ago and no idea if it has masks even now

Pretty sure it does.

Corel Paint Shop Pro 2 has layers. I've been going through the tutorials this afternoon. Although I still haven't found a tutorial on changing a particular colour. I'm pretty sure it's there and that it's just a case of me getting familiar with my editing software.

Thanks to everyone for their help

I very much like to get images right in the camera so that I have little editing to do when I get home. Unfortunately there are many images which will benefit from at least a small amount of tinkering with editing software which is why I am trying to brush up on my editing skills.

According to Wikipedia, Jasc owned PSP up to version 9.
Paint Shop Pro is currently in 18 (X so your version must be version X2 (twelve).
I think the menus haven't changed much and you want Adjust...Hue and Saturation...Hue/saturation/lightness.
You can mask off the changes to only apply to one part of the image.
