I see that pictures at SS can be editorial.  What does that mean?  How does that work and what pictues can I upload under that category?  I'm not too familiar with this and I would just like some clarification :)

Thanks in advance

Editorial means - documentary photography.  An editorial photograph cannot be used to sell a product.

If you use a picture to sell a product you need the models permission (a model release). If you don't have a model release (ie you took an image of a person on the street) the image could be used as editorial.  Shutterstock has this option for images where you don't have a release, say for example at a football game, or a large event.

i hope that makes sense.

It's not limited to people. Some buildings, locations, designs, logos, trademarks, etc require a release. Often quoted examples include the night time lighting of the Eiffel Tower, the TransAmerica Pyramid, the Lone Cypress, and Bicycle brand playing cards.

I've got some editorial on SS... 

Local sports photos without model release, from last winter season.  They sell OK.

for e.g.:

http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-1243009.html - India vs NZ womens ODI Cricket.

Also, editorial could be:
