How can I pick HEX color codes layers from Photoshop layers?

Choose the Eyedropper tool. Click somewhere on an open design, hold down and drag, and then you can actually sample color from anywhere on your screen.

To get the HEX code, just double click the foreground color and a window with color information will pop up. Then copy the hexidemal #123456 value (HEX code) to your clipboard.
