How to install Resource Packs in Minecraft 1.7.3/1.7.2?

To install resource packs in Minecraft 1.7.3 and 1.7.2, it is not very hard, it is almost the same as in 1.5!  A pack in 1.7 can be installed in 3 ways, basic, MCPatcher HD and Optifine HD method.  The first method is recommended for resource packs that are 8×8 or 16×16 in resolution, and the other two methods are recommended for packs HD, with resolution up to 32×32 to 512×512! I hope you understand the what about the resolution, and you need to install any packs. See below for the 3 methods!
