Use Color Dodge to brighten your graphics.
Photoshop has many different ways of blending layers. Different blending modes determine how the pixels on one layer effect the pixels on other layers beneath it.
The NORMAL blending method simply filters the pixels on one layer onto the other layers, shifting the pixels closer to the top layer's color.
blending modes are available right under the LAYERS tab.

layer whoops the monkey's ass.
pictures both have layers with COLOR DODGE blending.
Blurring the layer makes a nice gradient from brightness
to the background pixels. Use this effect to give your
imagery a sweet GLOWING effect.
