Subject: TEXT into image

I am grateful for all the suggestions so far as to what nifty tools I can
use to manipulate graphical images (Paint Shop Pro is good), but unless I
have missed something, I am really missing something. Namely, a device --
other than Corel Draw, which botches the job -- that will let me do the
following under Windows (3.1 or 95):

1. Import a pre-existing text file, preferably in the format of a
common wordprocessor, perhaps modify it, then
2. Output it as a .GIF image, or in any image format easily convertable
to .GIF without loss.

Suggestions, please.
