But Idon't think the capability is there. Not being a Linux expert and not as familiar with VMs as I should be, I can't say for sure.
My take would be to merge the partitions, then save them to the image file. It may also be possible to copy / to the image file, start your virtual machine, mount the appropriate /swap and /home partitions, then save the VM with /swap and /home incorporated.
