Use the round marquee selection tool and set the feather to 20.  Drag a selection area around the graphic and hit ctrl x then ctrl c.  This will cut and paste the feathered selection onto a new layer.  Now make a layer under that and fill it with solid white.  I'll be glad to elaborate as needed.

When you select the marquee tool your options should be available on one of the toolbars.  It should show feather and space for the amount and Antialias checkbox.

The marquee tool will do a nice round selection and is pretty non desctructive.  You could also use the brush tool and using a feathered brush, paint the area white but it probably will not be as clean.

On CS3 the option should be at the toolbar up near the top of your workspace.

that is it.  The amount of feathering also depends on the resolution of your file.  The higher the resolution the higher the amount of feathering will be needed to give it that faded out look.   CTRL J would be the proper shortcut after you drag your marquee selection as this will make a copy and paste it onto its own layer without cutting anything.

change the feathering to around 5, make the selection again and so on until you have what you want.

Use a gradient.  If you want just the right side to be white, go into the gradient tool options and make one side transparent, and the other white.  Then play.
