We have submitted some products to Google Merchant Center through Content API. One of the item got disapproved due to the issue Preemptive item disapproval: Images with watermarks or promotional text.
The image contains the brand name but there is no promotional text. We have more than 10,000+ products with brand name in the product image and we will be submitting those to GMC in upcoming days, so it is not possible to edit and remove the brands from each product. Why google is detecting image with brand/any text as an image which contains promotional overlays?

Below shown is the product image:

How should we fix this issue without manually editing each product image?

Yes, a very common issue with images like yours.
The reason is that Google uses automatic detection tools and can not see the difference between photoshopped text and text on products.
 
This issue applies to every single merchant, so you are not alone.
 
It is best to take a picture in perspective view so that the automatic tool.
 
As everyone will have the same issue, if you want to have a competitive edge, consider re-taking the picture. I know it's a hastle, but its the only solution.
