I'm trying to figure out how to make the generated barcodes be shorter (4 digits). The current codes are coming out at 8 digits which make them too long for the stickers for our smaller products. Is there a way to do this automatically or do I have to create them outside of Shopify and then upload? Thanks!

Outside of using custom barcode numbers as set in your admin, I don't believe you can specify the actual amount of characters sued below 8 (assuming yours are affixing a string of 0s).
What you can try is exporting those barcodes to the dymo printer software and customize the barcodes further as-per this support document.
Hopefully that helps! All the best.
