RE: burnt border
Make a rectangle selection and then use Select>Distort:

You'll have to try several combinations of values to find one that suits you. Ctrl-Z to undo and Ctrl-Shift-F to reshow the dialog are you friends Smile Even if you get in the correct range, you can try several times (use Select>Save to channel on the promising ones) to obtain various borders and pick the best.

On a 800x600 image, Treshold=128, Spread=4, granularity=6 and Smooth=1 did give reasonable results.

Of course, once you have a selection that pleases you;
1) ensure you have an alpha channel for the layer
2) Invert selection
3) Delete.
