This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This is not possible in the current version of Unity.

It is possible to resize the launcher.

You can change Unity Launcher icon size, so it will be smaller / larger, depends on how you want.

You cannot right click the unity panel, nor customize it, other than to change the theme.

Thanks all! I got so used to gnome, I just assumed Unity was the same! – John Apr 21 '11 at 7:33

There are a few customization options in the Compiz Settings Manager, including the ability to change icon size, which will, in turn, shrink the size of the panel.
