If a simple ASCII file is good enough to, you could redirect the output
of /dev/vcsX in to a file. The command
cat /dev/vcs0 > tty0.txt
redirects the content of your first console to the file tty0.txt. Maybe
thats enough for your needs and you don't have to play arround with anny
tools for gif or jpeg.
