changing strings on acoustic

Just got a new acoustic, not quite sure how to change the strings. Specifically, is there a right or wrong way to pull out the bridge pins?
I guess that's all I need.

If you have a string winder, there is a half-circle groove on the top which fits under the pin to pull it out. If not some times a wooden clothespin works or you my be able to use your fingers if it isn't too tight. Make sure you have loosened the strings first and always pull striaght out.

Hope this helps.
