Radial gradient outward from shape


Question

I'm trying to achieve a certain effect with Photoshop. Basically, I want the edges of my shape to bleed seamlesssly into the background. I'm trying to achieve a "radial" gradient from black to transparent based on the shape.

Here's a quick and dirty example. I can't use the gradient/radial tool because it is based on a circle and doesn't adapt to the uniqueness of the shape. Any help appreciated, thanks.

Double click on the layer with the shape and check "Outer Glow" and use these settings:

Then you can make a new layer and merge it with the layer containing the shape, so that it's not an effect but part of the layer. Select both, right click and choose Merge Layers.
