Is there a way to get the exact numerical color codes from an image?

I would like to get the exact color scheme from a certain image to use for the header of my website. Is there a program or some software where I can put the image in and find out the color to input for the HTML?

I'm talking about these codes - #??????.

Photoshop has that function which you use the pointer (shortcut: i) to point at the place where you want to get the color from and double click that color to get the Hexadecimal value.

You can also try for trying out different color combinations: Adobe Color CC

The "eyedropper" tool is pretty much a universal feature in image editing software. It will give the color of whatever pixel you click with it. Photoshop, Gimp, etc. all have this feature.
