Use the dd command in a terminal (konsole):
sudo dd if=/dev/sdg of=sdg.img
sudo dd if=/dev/sdg1 of=sdg1.img
Be careful not to mix up the if= and of= options because otherwise you
would overwrite the contents of the disk or partition.
As an extension you could gzip the images on the fly to save some space
sudo dd if=/dev/sdg | gzip >sdg.img.gz
