Fix MagicTints not working on macOS Catalina

Posted by Anastasiy Safari on Thursday Oct 17, 2019 Under MagicTints, Tips&tricks

MagicTints – 1-click color matching and color correction

MagicTints – 1-click color matching and color correction

If you have updated to macOS 10.15 Catalina you may have noticed that my MagicTints panel stopped working in Adobe Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC or InDesign CC. Some users reported errors like “MagicTints1.jsx cannot be opened because developer cannot be verified” and “Could not color match the following layers…”.

Don’t worry, there’s a fix for that! Please do the following:

1) Download MagicTints Catalina fix script
2) Open Adobe Photoshop CC and choose File -> Scripts -> Browse
   and locate MagicTintsCatalinaFix.jsx you just downloaded
3) That's it! Enjoy MagicTints

Please note that I don’t recommend to update to macOS Catalina yet as Photoshop itself may act strangely, there are problems with UI Scaling and other plugins. Hopefully Apple and Adobe would provide a fix soon. We will also publish the new update MagicTints that doesn’t require any additional scripts to run.

Please stay tuned and meanwhile enjoy MagicTints!
