Or at least, I couldn't figure out how to do so without messing it up.  In the past I used a utility that came with some software I bought, but that was three computers and two OS's ago.  So I just browsed around online and found a free online java-based barcode generator that worked fine.  Sorry, I don't remember which, but Google was quite helpful - there were several that seemed like they could do the job.

To resize, 

1. Click in the 'barcode box'
2. grab one of the corners and pull it to the size you want

To re-orientate

1. Click on the barcode box
2. Right click and go to properties
3. Select rotation point and rotation amount
