You could also use a CSS technique to hide the extra details, as long
as the design is clear so each caption is clearly identfied with each

<input type="text" name="caption1" id="caption1"><label
for="caption1"><span class="offLeft">Image 1 </span>caption</label>

Image 2 caption etc....

.offLeft {
