How to paint outdoor aluminium window frames?

Hi, I have powder coated aluminium window / door frames and I’m looking to paint them a different colour.

I have been reading a lot online and can’t work out what the best combination is. 
1: Do I brush it with an enamel paint
2: Spray it with a pressure pack can ( does the pressure pack paint last well ?)

3: Do I spray it with an electric paint gun using either two pack paint or enamel paint?

any help would be great!
