Are there any tips to increase the speed of your search function, ours feels a bit laggy.

Have you implemented the thumbnail-sized images?

The actual searching for information in these small datasets is likely to be instantaneous, but displaying the results in the UI could have performance issued.

Using small (thumbnail) images can help. Also, having the small images preloaded, so it isn't loading them from disk could also speed things up.

I don't know if you already did or how you are implementing it, but we used the Java's Stream API, which turns to be very fast.

A Map definitely would help with efficiency, that what our group uses for Search and Filters.
