    Is there a way to remove all images from my folder that contains text in my image?

    For example I have 500 images and on 100 images is a caption like "abcdef.com." Is it possible to remove such images from my folder that I have at the end only images without any caption / watermark on this folder?

    No. As far as I know is not possible. I'm quite good at programming, but I don't see myself nor a lot of good programmers capable of writing such tool, not even in 100 years.

    There are tools which can group visually similar images (even if they're different resolution, color etc.), not just 1:1 clones, but you'd need something complicated than that.
    Maybe not the only but your best option is a freelancer, if you aren't willing to do it yourself.

    You could use some OCR to extract text from images and depending on that make a decision if it is a watermark or not.

    Well to prevent situations like this is by backing up images without watermarks/text before you watermark them.
    That way you have two batches, a watermarked and not watermarked ones. You can delete away those watermarked ones while still having the batch of original unmarked ones.

    I think the OP is saying he already has a batch of files and some are watermarked and some are not and he wants to separate them.
