2 screenshots of Special:Log - top half in default view, bottom half with the c:Help:Gadget-PrettyLog gadget enabled.

PrettyLog is a small gadget that gives log pages a layout similar to the search results. If the log contains file uploads, the gadget also adds a small thumbnail for each file.

Apart from a somewhat improved layout, the biggest benefit is that these modifications enable the Gallery details gadget to work also on log pages. Users who have the Gallery details gadget enabled in addition to this PrettyLog gadget will get the "Gallery details" sidebar link. When clicked, the Gallery details gadget will display extended information on all images listed.
