Particularly since this would involve filesystem access, it is not possible for flash to save images to file at runtime. Unfortunately, you also can't serve image files on the fly HTTP style.

If this is for a desktop application, then I suppose the good news is that some 3rd party Flash desktop wrappers allow exporting images at runtime.

ScreenTime's mProjector has a method to capture a region of the screen to JPG, for example, which can effectively provide that functionality provided that a JPG is sufficient. Since you can also use the methods provided by mProjector to capture screen size and position, you can export a very precise portion of your flash to an image.
