I think it would be great if photoshop had a timer that we could have options to start a clock to actually keep track of how long it takes to work on a project. After all time is money. : )

We already have this in the way of History Log.

Go to Preferences and Turn on History Log. Then choose "detailed" from the pop up menu.

If you are only interested in the Session times just choose session.

NOTE: This log is cumlative. So if you close and open a new image it just appends the new history to the log.

You will get output that looks like this.

May I recommend "Cool Timer"

http://download.cnet.com/Cool-Timer/3...

It's a simple timer. I like to give myself time to draw.... say "2 hours" and work continuously through that time. (not checking emails or anything)

Add up all those times, and you get a pretty good sense how long something took.
