Dear Adobe:

Can you please save the history in my PSD files so I can come back to a project later and use the history brush?

is filed under ‘Photoshop

Adobe says:

Currently the history log can be saved in the file as metadata and/or as a text file (general preferences). This is a text representation of what you did as it appears in history/actions panel. I imagine this request is to record individual brush strokes which would result in a very huge file hundreds of numbers representing the location of each tool at that time. The history brush paints in pixels from a previous history state for that particular document. If you wanted to paint in exact pixels from that state there are certainly easy ways to do this in PS (clone, save composite as a pattern). To save the history snapshot in the file is a great idea.
