This question has been asked elsewhere. A solution is to paste the full 
object to a new layer, add a layer mask, fill the shape with a shaped 
gradient (which is a function of the distance to the outline) and then 
use the Brightess/Contrast (2 sliders), Levels (5 sliders), or Curves 
(256 sliders) to adjust the blend.

On a tangent, you just pointed out the biggest flaw with shaped gradients:  You can't specify a gradient 
length.  What's the point of even having it without that functionality?  I'd get faster (more precise, 
controllable, etc.) results by brushing the edges by hand.
