Hi!

If I trace a free picture and post it on FA, is it legal?
That's a definite NO.
Not a chance.
The work is not by you. Tracing it does not change this any more than copy-pasting a writer's work into a document and uploading it makes that yours.

Quick question. Can you post a picture of your desktop? It says no screenshots in the AUP and it's technically not by you, but there's a "desktop" selection in the art list.

The "Desktops" category is primarily for historical interest, i.e. FA staff do not actively maintain what categories do or do not appear in the dropdown boxes.

Unless it displays a wallpaper artwork made by you, desktop screenshots generally do not constitute enough user-created content to satisfy the "By You" clause and therefore are not allowed.

It's easier to avoid the subject altogether than define the acceptability of edge-cases.
