I would like to ask for additional details in regards to the license types and the “editorial use only” rules.
I am making a tour guide page and I would like to use stock images, that I have already been buying but not used yet. I am concerned of any potential small print that could get me into trouble for a breach that I may be unaware of.
So, if you may allow me to create a scenario that is more specific to me and explain to me if this is possible please?

Editorial Use is for news articles.
You're using Stock images for commercial purposes -- web, email, printed promotion & marketing materials for your services. Therefore a Standard License is all you need. See link below for comparison chart.
Websites are not limited to 500k views. The 500k limit applies to print and print-like products and if my memory is correct also for tv.
So I agree with Nancy, a standard license based on the information you provided should be OK. Please note, however, that you will need a license per customer. If you are doing one slide show for hotel A and one for hotel B you will probably need 2 licenses of the same image. If you are creating a booking site for hotels and you have also the slide show on your site, then you will be good with one license. The rule is one license per final customer. If you are really unsure about the licensing terms, you should ask a lawyer specialized in this matter. But my understanding is that the terms are really clear and simple to understand.

(Disclaimer: As always with licensing, this is my interpretation of the rules. I think they are correct and advice is based on reading and interpreting the licence terms and on fair use for both the buyer and the artist/stock company, but I cannot rule out that my interpretation is wrong. I'm not an Adobe employee).
