Assets function is really slow
Since a change some time ago to Perch (I think) which put all the images being used in Content Regions into the Assets area (previously I think you had to explicitly add images to Assets), our Assets content is now several thousand images in size.
Most of these images are used just once in a particular story, and are never reused in another story, but we have about 250 that are used over and over.
Our problem is that finding an image is now very slow as Perch sorts through all our Assets to find the one our editor wants.
Is there a solution to this? I looked through Buckets but can't see how I can use this. I really would like Assets to just respond with the 250 images we reuse. Since these all share a common naming convention (xxxcrest.jpg where xxx is a number), we can easily sort out the ones we want to reuse.
