Automatic creation of images displaying sequential numbers

How do I automatically create a series of images of sequential numbers?
( 01.jpg shows the number '1', 02.jpg the number '2', etc)

I would prefer to do this using software for Windows. Although if need be, a Mac-only solution would do.
The file-format is of no importance, since conversion is always possible.
Image size for my use is about 500x500 pixels. Simple two-tone images are fine, although some influence on (randomization of) background color, font type/color would be even better.
I'm no guru, but have a basic understanding of Adobe's CS3 Suite and have monkeyed around with various video-editing programs (using the titler functions) as well as image-management software (e.g. ThumbsPlus) and different watermarking software to get this problem solved, but without success.
I'm sure it must be possible, even if the method is a 'dirty' way of using a program. ThumbsPlus for example can make thumbnail-sheets of images, which it then numbers, if you ask it to. However, I haven't been able to cheat this option into doing what I need.
Any ideas? Making these by hand is not going to be fun...
