What you can do is set the layer mode of the inner glow to something like grain merge or hard light, then you can add a layer mask to it and use a grunge brush on the mask to create a grungy look for the glow - this will give a look of slightly worn edges. Combine this with the outline and adjust their relative opacities until you have something that looks good.
The current outline looks... ok, it's nice and sharp and all, but I think you could do a bit more and push it over "ok", and into "good" or even "great" territory.

scrap the whole canvas texture and rethink the map completely.
also background images should never overpower the map.
piece of paper
font gives the impression of brush movement but when you add that black stroke everything got messed up.

Your opinion is noted.

Lose the black stroke, you lose the title.
koontz1973 wrote:Bridges are not a single stroke, they are a wood texture with a lighter glow. This may be simple but it fits the map and covers the bridges in Jakarta which are made from mostly wood planks and tubed steel going over the waterways. There are not many "bridges" as we would have them.

Quit being lazy and just do them properly. Youre not a 1st time mapmaker, you should know better.
Just do something that looks like bridges its not like im asking much here.
