    I tried it for fun, and here's what I get tweaked to Choke 20% and size 81 (other settings the same)

    I understand that Gimp is similar to photoshop in a lot of ways, hopefully layer effects is one of them, and this translates across...

    Layer effects is not one of them.

    That being said, I don't think it's impossible to replicate, just will require more steps.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.

    And the steps I used here were-
    The Greater Therbani River Valley-butn.jpg

    (optional...)
    - Select the map area (non-white)
    - shrink the area
    - create a new layer mask from the selection
    - Filters>Artistic>Cubism on the mask to make a more chewed up edge
    - Threshold the mask
    (...up to this point)

    - Create a new layer, filled with black set to burn mode
    - Add a layer mask same as the map but inverted.
    - Filter>Generic>Dialate the mask a number of times to increase the burn width
    - Blur the mask
    - play with the curves of the mask to get the look you want.

    I also added a drop shadow.

    Post Thanks!

    Thank you all for these comments! The help with the burnt edges is particularly helpful, and your comments about mountains led me to a really great mountain tutorial on the site here! This was so useful! Next time I make a map in this style, I think I'll feel a bit more confident in the mountains and edges. And next time I'll do a WIP thread like I'm supposed to!

    Anyway, thanks again!
