[Xen-users] Convert LVM to Images

Hi all,

I have XEN with LVM based disk and I want to convert it to images in order to use tapdisk. However since my disk is limited I want to shrink the .img file. I have 10Gb file in LVM but I only use 5GB of them. I can use dd to convert it to image file but the file will remain the same with the original 10Gb. I can use lvresize but I am afraid it will damage the LVM files. Any best practices?
