You can actually call IMGTEXT directly from your extension. I'd use:

$imageTextConfiguration = array();
$imageTextConfiguration['text.']['10'] = 'TEXT';
$imageTextConfiguration['text.']['10.']['value'] = $bodytext;
$imageTextConfiguration['textPos'] = 17;
$imageTextConfiguration['imgList'] = $imgList;

Use t3lib_div::makeInstance() to create new objects and not the 
Besides, if you are making a pi_base extension (i.e. not using Extbase) 
then there is already an instance available:


> $content = $myCObj->cObjGetSingle($TS['conf'],$TS['conf.']);

As said earlier, you can directly call IMGTEXT:

$content = $this->cObj->IMGTEXT($imageTextConfiguration);

Note: is your configuration really complete? See example in [1]. Test it 
first in Typoscript (with a list of images from a directory) and use the 
working configuration in your extension...
