I just realized that some blog posts I've been reading use SS images that are EDITORIAL ones ...

It is a proper use? May i use them for blog article, even if in same page i am promoting a commercial product / service ??

Editorial photos are used in newspapers and magazines alongside adverts.
(That isn't a legal opinion, IANAL)

It depends on what you are doing with the editorial use image. Newspapers have stories with accompanying images on the same page as ads, so putting mixed content types in one place is not a problem.

If you are writing infomercial blog posts - in the style of a news or magazine story, but it's just a marketing/sales pitch - then stay away from editorial use only stock images.

Focus on the story the editorial use image is used with, not what else is on the same page or other parts of a blog, to decide if it's appropriate

Well, my project involves information on sports science, and I am looking to sell related info products, but the articles will be on neutral topics, not on products.

(For this project many of the editorial photos look much more attractive, especially those during sporting events)
