How to Use Acronis True Image to Clone a Hard Drive

I'm planning to replace my computer's hard drive with a new SSD from my brother. He told me that I could use Acronis True Image to clone my hard drive to the SSD without effort. But I haven't used this tool before. Do you know how to use it to clone my hard drive?
