You don't need to be a developer to adjust that.

Find the file called addborder.scm amd open it in the file editor.
Change 250 to whatever you need in these two lines:

  SF-ADJUSTMENT _"Border X size" '(12 1 250 1 10 0 1)
  SF-ADJUSTMENT _"Border Y size" '(12 1 250 1 10 0 1)

Same thing. Find and open add-bevel.scm, tweak this line:

  SF-ADJUSTMENT _"Thickness"       '(5 0 30 1 2 0 0)

Actually, I think that now that pictures are bigger on average, we
might adjust that in upstream, although I'm not sure if this should be
done in 2.8.x.

In both cases, technically it's better to:

1. Make copies of the original files,

2. Edit your copies. Change names of the scripts that show up in menu,
e.g. change:

_"Add B_evel..."


_"Advanced Add B_evel..."

3. Rename the low-level technical name that is used for registering a
new script, e.g. change

(script-fu-menu-register "script-fu-add-bevel" "<Image>/Filters/Decor")


(script-fu-menu-register "script-fu-advanced-add-bevel" "<Image>/Filters/Decor")

as well as:

(script-fu-menu-register "script-fu-add-bevel" "<Image>/Filters/Decor")


(script-fu-menu-register "script-fu-advanced-add-bevel" "<Image>/Filters/Decor")

4. Place edited copies to your local scripts folder. That way your
changes won't be overwritten, when you install new version of GIMP.

Sorry, I don't get it. Bevel is a 3D thing. It's supposed to have
shading. If you need a flat fill inthe frame, please use the Add
Border script.
