If you use the caption package (https://www.ctan.org/pkg/caption), you
can indicate in each figure the width of the caption. In this case, you
would have to introduce the code using raw latex via the `:caption'
property:

#+LaTeX_Header: \usepackage{caption}

#+ATTR_LaTeX: :caption \captionsetup{width=.3\linewidth}\caption{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit}
#+ATTR_LaTeX: :width .3\linewidth
[[file_path]]

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
