It is very difficult to understand exactly what changes have been made to an image by reading the log file. I suggest these simple (from my point of view) changes that I believe can improve readability of the (detailed) log file.

  1. use the correct numbering when interchanging layers. See:
  2. records like "Select next document" do not add to the readability. Instead, you should state which document was selected by referring to its name. The same problem is when image is closed. The closing operation is logged, but it is not clear which document has become active and to which all further operations are related.
  3. log file contains many records which are not important at all. For ex. when browsing through the layer blending modes in Photoshop using arrow keys each change is logged, but in reality only the last selection is important.
