Ok, I usually do in this way: take 1 or 2 days, don't look at the map....then open your file and try to do what was suggested. If it doesn't work come back to the topic and give a reason for that.

Take time, no one is asking to you to do that right now!

Leave in the bin for the moment please.

Redrawn the map itself and all aspects dealing with it.
New rivers (both types)
New bridges (not needed but done)
New mini map
In fact, only the background image has not been touched.

This looks much better! The only thing I would suggest right now is to subdue the background a tad bit to bring more contrast between the map and the background.

Decreased the contrast on the background by 20 and increased it on the map and mini map by 20 (GIMP scale). Enough? If yes, move it back please, if not, then leave it here till right please.

Looking at this again, I think that you can reduce the "bevel" of the map a tad bit. Can you subdue (decrease the opacity) of the background a tad bit more? Also the piece of paper that explains the rivers, it looks out of place. Maybe place the text on another piece of canvas, but make it so that the right side looks like it is slightly curling up off the main canvas? Just do a single colored canvas, like a yellowish-brown color.
