By placing photos in Designer (Desktop) the .afdesign files get very big. Is it possible to link photos, so that the file size of the .afdesign file stays small?

You can link images rather than embed them. Go to Documents/Resource Manager.

 

Edit: Oops, I may have spoken to soon. This option is available in Publisher but possibly not in Designer.

Didn't you think, that the "Edit:" passage could be added after a post from @dutchshader?

I think the answer can be easily derived - No, only the APublisher can link the pictures.

If you have an APublisher, there is no problem opening *.afdesign files in it, and convert embeded image to linked.
Designer even has a hidden Resource Manager, so he can solve the missing linked file.

Perhaps it will eventually allow the linking images in Designer.
