Linux photo management software?

Hi there

This seems to be the closest forum to fit my question, since it isn't specifically about a certain brand of camera or computer..

I was previously running Linux on a 2014 era ASUS i7 laptop, but have just upgraded to a new System 76 laptop, with 3x the CPU cores and graphics RAM and much, much faster storage. I was using Shotwell because it's pretty good for minimal effort photo storage and quick edit/uploads, however it's catalog based archive is groaning under the weight of over 75,000 photos/videos. Although its interface is comforting to someone nostalgic for Picassa, I feel like I need to modernize my digital photo library.  Shotwell is unusable for the first 15 minutes after launch, albeit on the old computer with spinning SATA hard disk storage, while it finds all its photos.  And if the external storage happens to not be mounted, then all the pictures literally disappear in front of your eyes.  Not really lost, but it's downright disturbing to watch.

So I've got this brand new System 76 Linux laptop (it doesn't even have a Windows graphic on the super key!) and I would like to prime it with some more modern way to mind my digital photo library.  Are there any Linux users here and if so, what do you use?
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
