There's a package for GIMP called net-fu which does just this.  This is
what we used as a starting point for our site, FlamingText.com.  Bryan
Livingston of CoolText.com used to be the maintainer of this package, but 
i'm not sure if he still is.

net-fu contains a bunch of modified script-fu scripts (interactive stuff 
removed, output saved to file), and a couple of CGI's.  One CGI
dynamically generates forms to get the script parameters (text, colors,
font, fontsize, etc) and another submits "jobs" to the script-fu server
plug-in running inside a GIMP that is started in batch mode.
