Shrinking image faster for smaller sized drives?

    When I created my Parallels Windows image, I let it create the default expanding image of about 32 gigs. I really don't need that much and since compressing images seems to take such a long time, I'd like to know if having a smaller expanding image (lets say 10 gigs) would mean that compressing takes less time. If in both cases, 6 gigs were taken up and 1 or 2 could be freed, would the 10 gig image shrink faster than the 32? I'm not sure if the way Parallels compresses would make a difference.
