The spell, Lock Pick Enhancement (also called Picking Enhancement), allows the caster to give the target a bonus on both their magical and non magical picking attempts.

In manual lock picking (picking with a lock pick) there are a number of factors which influence the bonus. This includes the caster's level, the caster's ranks in both minor elemental Spells and Pick Locks skill, along with the targets dexterity bonus.

When the target is performing magical lock picking, the bonus is related only to the targets aura bonus along with the target's minor elemental spell ranks.

If the spell is being cast from a scroll and the caster does not have personal knowledge of the spell (7 ranks in minor elemental spells) the spell looses 10 to 50% of its effectiveness. And this is if the caster is self-casting it. If the caster is casting the spell onto another, the bonus is reduced by another 50%.
