Text in Images

I am creating a grammar test online and I want to have the questions in .gif format and the answers in .gif format to help prevent copying (please don't focus on this. I am aware of the difficulties) I have a monitor with screen res. of 1920 x 1080. I selected Arial Black, 16 pt as the text to use because it is clean, clear and bold. I use Fireworks and create a 700px x 72px, 300 DPI canvas and placed the text on this canvas and saved it as a .gif image. I have to create close to 4,000 of these images. All are the exact same dimensions and the same format etc. I have two questions:
1) Can this be automated somehow?
