Not exactly sure if this will work... Maybe I'm reading it wrong or thinking about it wrong...
The original link you sent http://pondini.org/TM/A8.html is what I'm using. Under the partition tab, when I try to drag the bottom right corner up to adjust the size, I can't go smaller than the data that's already on my TC - in other words, I can't make it smaller than the blue shaded area, even if I manually type "200" GB under the size field. It's thinking that the partition has to contain all the other junk (like pics and movies) that I already have on my TC. Not sure any of the previous suggestions could help - unless, like I said, I'm just totally thinking about this wrong...?

It's helpful to remember that a partition is different then the sparsebundle.
If you have divided your TC drive into multiple partitions, each one will have its own volume name. If you select Time Capsule in the Shared section of the sidebar (in list view) and the only thing that appears is a folder named "Time Capsule," then your TC drive has only one partition. And everything that's been placed on your TC is taking up space in that partition.
If you still have only one partition on your TC, and you have another drive you can use to move things around, I'd suggest taking everything else off your TC and storing it elsewhere, then you can reorganize things to suit your your needs.
One fairly easy thing to do would be to move everything except your current TM sparsbundle off your TC, then create a disk image on the TC which takes up almost all remaining unused space. That will limit additional growth of your TM sparsebundle, and you can then keep that additional disk image mounted on your desktop if you wish and use it for whatever you desire.
Just a thought.

So I got it to work. I basically did what was in the first video that I posted, then followed steps 7-10 in the link you gave me. Thanks!
