TUTORIAL: a stylized chrome dollar sign

A dollar sign image can be useful when writing about any subject involving money direct or indirectly. Now let's make a beautiful and yet very stylized chrome "$".

To get the text effect, go to this free text generator and make that configuration:
- Text: $;
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Font name: Bandy.

That's the image you get:

Extra tips:
- if you try it using a different font, don't forget that many fonts don't offer the character "$";
- this sign is stylized because of its shape, but we used a traditional metallic effect. In future, we will try to make a yet less usual dollar with a different effect;
- you can try a lot of cool metallic text effects in this text generator catalog.
