It’s been months in the making (still isn’t finished, actually) and we’re finally ready to introduce everyone to a new resource—PsDefaults.
PsDefaults is a complete replacement set of default graphics (also known as presets) for Adobe Photoshop. Forget living with that blue bubbly pattern forever: this new set of presets is entirely hand-crafted, modern, beautiful, and ready to use.

When it comes to download limits, it has been a long and winding road for us here at MediaLoot.
We started off with unlimited downloads. This didn’t work well (or last long) because people were paying one monthly fee and downloading everything on the site. We couldn’t pay our designers, long-term members were getting shorted, and well… you get the idea.
Following that we launched the multi-plan system we have now with download credits and a set number of downloads you could have each month. This has worked fairly well with one exception: members who didn’t use all of their downloads in one month (which were many) lost those downloads and couldn’t use them again next month. In effect, members were penalized for not using all of their downloads, even if they didn’t need them that month. That’s not what we want to happen…
Now, thanks to your suggestions, we have a big announcement to make: Rollover downloads are here.[Continue Reading →]
It may be true that 99.5% of people think MediaLoot subscriptions are awesome, but there are still .5% who would rather buy things that don’t bill them every month. And we’re aiming for 100% satisfaction here =D
Introducing Yearly Credit Bundles
For the first time in history, you can now buy a bundle of credits instead of purchasing a subscription. Credit bundles start cheap—at $69 for 60 downloads ($1.15 per credit) we’re talking iStockPhoto prices before they went mainstream. You can get icon sets, UI kits, and even complete website designs for less than $1.15 each with no recurring charges. Try finding that anywhere else.
But just like iStockPhoto, these prices will go up as the plans become popular, so we recommend buying soon. Like right now.[Continue Reading →]
Just a little over one year ago this site transitioned from a vague idea into a living and breathing website. Thousands of people lined up for the announcement, and in what felt like moments (and was actually a few days) we had signed up hundreds of members. We knew then that despite thousands of hours of work we were just getting started, but the important thing was that people were using and enjoying our service—so all of the effort was worthwhile. Over a year later (and with many more members) this fact still holds true, and you guys are still the reason that we put in long hours to deliver the best resources.
Now it wouldn’t be a great birthday without presents, so let’s move on to the free stuff. In honor of our first birthday we’re giving away 5 premium resources for free (to everyone), we’re discounting our membership plans for the next 100 people who sign up, and we’re giving away 5 free one-year memberships.

With the first birthday of MediaLoot nearly upon us it’s hard not to think about all of the high and low moments of the past year. We’ve been incredibly lucky to have so many wonderful members, and we’ve also faced some very tough challenges in keeping this site running the way we want it to run. Today, I am happy to announce some exciting news.
As many of you have noticed, there were times over the past several months when our resource production and blog updates slowed practically to a halt. No longer will this happen—we have officially added designer Tony Thomas into our core team and his primary responsibility is to keep this site filled with new and amazing resources. As you can see from our browse page, he’s already started to make a huge impact.
The second major announcement is that we will no longer be selling Unlimited Download subscriptions after March 1st, 2011. Our collection is just getting too big and it is not fair to our members or designers to continue offering everything for a single payment. If you’re already a member you can keep your unlimited subscription forever, and if you aren’t yet a member you can still get an unlimited subscription until March 1st. New pricing and subscriptions will be announced once we discontinue the unlimited membership.
What’s not changing? The fact that MediaLoot has a community of awesome members and we’ll continue bringing you guys the best resources we can at the best price you can find anywhere.[Continue Reading →]
We’ve been working really hard on some new programs here at MediaLoot, and now I am very happy to announce that we now have both free registration and a super-easy (and generous) affiliate program. If you’re already a member, you can take advantage of the affiliate program immediately in your member area, and new users can follow all of the instructions available here to sign up.

It’s only been a month and a half since we launched MediaLoot but already we’ve had an incredible number of people join our community and a lot of amazing things have happened. Over the last 6 weeks we’ve released icon sets, texture packs, print templates, web elements, and more—all while working to deliver the most intuitive and beautiful web-interface we can.
Throughout this whole time you guys have been instrumental in offering feedback and shaping our future, so we thought it would be really cool for us to share some of the things we’ve done, some of the things we’re working on, and some of our progress over this first month.
Let’s take a look.[Continue Reading →]
As you may already know, MediaLoot is going live today!
We’re really excited to let you in to the site, we’ve worked very hard over the past couple months to build the site, design resources and get everything ready for today.
I’d like to invite you to browse around the site and check out the resources we have already. Make sure you have a look at the tour page too![Continue Reading →]
We recently gave you guys a quick sneak peek of the MediaLoot website design and since then, we’ve been working very hard (and pulling a couple of all-nighters) on getting the site and all the features ready for the launch. In fact MediaLoot will open its doors very soon!
Our official launch date is March 9th! The count down has started!
If you haven’t already, you might want to sign-up to our newsletter so you’ll be the first to know when we go live.
If you can’t tell, we’re really excited about the upcoming launch. I know a lot of you are too. Since we’re officially launching next week, we thought we could give you another sneak peek and show you some pages you haven’t seen yet.[Continue Reading →]
We’ve been hard at work lately, gathering resources, working with some awesome designers and of course, working on the actual site design.
We thought it’d be nice to show you guys what the MediaLoot website will look like once we launch.
Of course since MediaLoot will be a membership site, the header section needs to have many elements that are common to paid membership sites. Things like a login form and a drop-down ‘browse’ menu item were no-brainers.
The top navigation menu will change depending on whether a visitor is logged in or not. For example, logged in users don’t need to see the ‘tour’ menu item, this will be for logged out users and new visitors.
We also wanted to have a welcome message with a strong call to action. Check out the screenshots below ↓[Continue Reading →]
