Again, Screenshot came up in the discussions last night, but it's too
generic, like "Music".

Apparently Safelight is an app on the Mac, as is Iris and Snap (by
Groupon, no less). There's no app called Selfie, but I don't think too
many people like the word "Selfie", and Googling Selfie will bring up
actual selfies, not the KDE app. But then again, Selfie makes so much
sense - a screenshot is literally a screen selfie.
