You'd make an image of your current HDD with something like the free EaseUS Todo Backup. Create a boot disk (also with the EaseUS Todo Backup software), switch hard drives to the SSD, boot the PC with the boot disk and restore the image to the SSD.

I'd advise to save the image on another internal HDD.

To get maximum performance from your SSD, make sure it's aligned. You can use Acronis Align Tool.
