Put text into form that appears on an image

Chances are that title didn't make any sense. :whistle: I'm looking for a tool (or coding tutorials) on how I can make a form in which one would input text, which would then display on an image as the output. For example, last.fm somehow does this with their Chart Images (which update automatically based on scrobbled tracks), and those horrid sign generators do it too, but I'm not sure how they do it so that I could do something similar for a form on my site. Any insight would be welcome. :)

EQnoble made me some bbcode buttons that would convert into buttons.

The idea is in the bbcode thread.
The buttons he posted on his site.

Does that output as a button or an image (i.e. is the image I'm seeing here your screenshot of the button, or the actual output of what the BBCode does)? If it's a button, probably not much use to me, but if it's an image, then that would be along the lines of what kind of coding I'd need, I believe.

:p I'm aware of what a button is...just confused on what the output is. Search didn't locate such a post--have a direct link to where that's posted?
