Fans are encouraged to use the images "within the bounds of common sense," according to a translation of the Japanese message on the website.

The first eight films from which images are available are Spirited Away, Ponyo, The Wind Rises, The Secret World of Arrietty, From up on Poppy Hill, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, Tales From Earthsea, and When Marnie Was There.

Fifty images from each film are offered, and could be used as computer desktop wallpaper or in other ways. 

Studio Ghibli has become much more accessible in recent years. The studio's films used to be unavailable for streaming, but now almost all its movies can be watched on HBO Max.
