Guys you don't need an expensive plugin, it's not perfect but I used happyaftereffecting's custom preset. It has some problems (using only local pixels) but it looks good enough for most minor work.

using maltaannon's light wrap I created this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11GBPwkdbTg

A quick and dirty lightwrap technique is to simply use Layer Styles - Inner Glow, set the blend mode to Soft Light and select the most prevalent BG colour with the eyedropper.
It ain't perfect, but it's heaps faster and takes a LOT less time and effort.
