How to Create a Photo Directory for Large Chorus

Does anyone know of a good computer program that will create simple photo directories?  I have a large chorus and am in need of making one.  I  have a Mac. I used to be able to create and print photo directories from my Mac's "Address Book" (what is now called "Contacts"), but since upgrading to Mountain Lion, I haven't been able to do so.  Mac keeps promising an update, but so far, no luck.  iCloud doesn't help either.
 
Any suggestions for a Mac user would be helpful.  Is there an App for that?
 
Thank you,
 
Susan Duprey

i don't know of a program that does it for you.  I have used Word and Publisher to create seating charts for all my elementary student. (I like Word better) I take the pictures and insert them into the program (either one works), sized them and type the names in a text box below each picture.  Once I have a formatted page, I save it, then go in and change the pictures and names and save as for the next page.  It takes a while to get it set up, but changing the pictures doesn't take too long.  i'd love to know if there is a program that will make it faster; however, this is how I currently do it and it works.  I have 680 students so it takes me quite a bit of time to do all of them.
