If you mean such as a screenshot, algodoo has the console command system.screenshot which is actually binded to F12, which will save a dump of the current rendered window contents, not 100% sure where it saves it too as I haven't used it in a while and don't have algodoo installed on this OS just yet, however take a screenshot and press F11 to open the console and it will tell you exactly where the image is.

This only produces an image of the scale of the current window, which is limited to the size of the monitor. if you need a image larger than what your screen is capable of showing, you may be able to abuse system.resolution (fire system.recreatewindow after using this command to apply) to set a custom resolution which should be able to exceed the scale of your current desktop resolution, you will have to work blind with the area of the screen you can't see and use the image dump to see where you need to pan the screen.

You can set "gui.opacity = 0" in the console to fully hide the GUI, however you will blindly need to enter "gui.opacity = 0.9" in the console or reset your config to restore the GUI, so I would suggest taking a image larger than needed while in play mode and cropping out what you don't actually want (e.g. GUI components).
