Multi-dimensional radiative energy transport is coupled self-consistently to magnetohydrostatic solutions for fluxtubes with rotational symmetry. It is shown that the photospheric layers of plage and network fluxtubes are heated by radiation by as much as 300 K at equal geometrical height. The amount of heating depends on the density reduction within the tube. The results are compared with observational data and the most recent semi-empirical model.
