    seems like it worked with some brushes, transparency, layers, brightness arrangement in photoshop

    you can do it without custom brushes, its just alot of blur, glowing effects, color blends, lots of layers

    I find it to be very effective in ads...
    Here's an example where I've used it for a tanning comp. :eek:

    I've made the info generic, so as not to infringe on copyrights. :D

    Looks like a dreamsuite plugin for photoshop.

    That effect is called bloom. There are a few variants, but most involve duplicating the image, blurring the "top" one, and blending it either normally on low transparency, or in addition mode with medium transparency.
