One method...

Log[a] + 2*Log[b] - Log[c];
% //. (a_.)*Log[b_] + (c_.)*Log[d_] -> Log[b^a*d^c]


Concerning your previous posting, an expression like...

\!\(Log[\(a\ b\^2\)\/c]\)

can be copied and pasted into a Mathematica notebook even though it is not
easy to read in a posting. An Input/Output cell can be converted to
InputForm before copying into a posting or the Copy As Input Form palette
can be downloaded from..

Log[a] + 2 Log[b] - Log[c]

Which Function will return the original "Log"?
