I am migrating from an older iMac to a new Mac Mini. One thing I would like to include are the third party colour pickers to ~/Library/ColorPickers.

I have copied the colour picker packages, but I can’t use them, because they come from unknown developers. The usual trick of right-click open doesn’t work here.

How can I enable these color pickers?

Make sure the files don't have quarantine attributes? See my answer here:

"Install Spotify" can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software

In this case you can try:

xattr -d com.apple.quarantine *.colorPicker
