VMware reduce virtual image hard drive size

I installed VMWare Workstation and setup a 100gb image. However this is much larger than I need. I would like to reduce this size to 20gb. How do you  reduce the size of the virtual hard drive. Newbie

If you have the extra 20 or so Gig, you can simple do a V2V of the VM using the vCenter Converter Standalone tool (https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/?p=converter&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4GGLL_enUS338US338&q=vcenter%20converter).
