Is there a way to blur just the text in any image, automatically?
I have a lots of PNG images with text(s) in them. And I have to blur all of it from all of them.
Is there a way to automate this?

In order to automatically blur text in an image, you first need some way of detecting that there is text in it. Image recognition is quite complex and resource intensive, so you would need something like OCR, and then something else to blur the detected areas. I personally don't know of any tools to do this.
What you can do is blur the images manually, using Photoshop, Gimp or similar. The procedure will be similar for both programs: Select an area with the selection tool, and apply a Gaussian blur to the selection. In Photoshop, you can automate this process by saving the blur as an action, so you would need to manually make the selection of the areas you want to blur, and then apply the action.
