Now merge all layers (Ctrl-Shift-E), it is a good idea to save a copy of PSD file before that. For resulting single layer, open layer effects, and add Gradient overlay:
- blend mode = linear burn;
- opacity = about 20%;
- gradient = white to black (reversed);
- style = radial;
- scale = maximum.

This will give us nice fading effect, where image is darkened at the edges.
