Hi fperfect

The best way to do this would be to save the image in the Tcl/tk canvas to postscript.  And spawn ghostscript to convert  the postscript file to a gif file.
I assume you have ghostscript installed on your machine.
command 'gs -h' gives cursory help.

Generate postscript for the canvas is remarkablely simple.
For example, to generate a postscript file for a canvas named .drawing.
you would write
.drawing postscript

If you need further help, please let me know.
