Hi babgond,

You can add photos manually. In such case, you create a design template. Then using this template create individual card for each member (one document per person). Then choose File > Print Multiple Designs and select the created documents.

Another way is to create a single document and replace the textual information and photos automatically. Note that all information including a photo should be placed into Address Book. To add a replaceable image, choose Insert > Image > Merged Image. Text fields such as First Name, Last Name, Address and so on are replaceable by default. To print, choose File > Print for Several People, then select persons from the list.

Other sources for the Merged Image can be selected in the Image tab of the Inspector (iPhoto, Aperture, list in a text file).The program can also import (name, address, and other info) from a text file to print cards for different persons. But using the Address Book is the easiest way.
