I've got a figure which has several annotations on-image. The figure caption explains these:

\caption{Image of my item. (1) Part of the item. (2) Another notable part of the item. (3) Yet another part. (4) The final part of the item. 

The List of Figures uses the entire caption, which looks slightly silly. Ideally I'd like to use half the \caption text, excluding the annotation explanations.

Is there a way to achieve this?

Use the optional \caption argument: \caption[LoF caption]{Long text caption}

\caption[Short caption for LoF]
  {Image of my item. (1) Part of the item. %
   (2) Another notable part of the item. %
   (3) Yet another part. %
   (4) The final part of the item.}
