Basically I have a list of a few hundred telephone numbers. I am wanting to create an image for each number without having to open paint and type the number then hit save a bunch of times. Is there a way to either

a) do this inside of excel?

b) use asp.net to accomplish this

c) use c# to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance for the help!

This should get you started.
Creates a bitmap, draws text, saves to file.

            private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                  string s = "Test String";
                  Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(100, 50);
                  Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp);
                  g.FillRectangle(Brushes.Black , 0, 0, bmp.Width,bmp.Height);
                  g.DrawString(s, new Font("Tahoma", 12), Brushes.White, new PointF(0, 0));
