Following are the ways using which we can bypass it!

1) Skipping the new photo viewer by pressing F5:

Yes, Its a small trick and quite handy using which you can easily by-pass this new photo viewer, After opening the photo you may press F5 button provided on keyboard and you will be back to classic photo viewer.

2) Using Right Click:

Whenever you are opening any photo just right click on (thumbnail) it and, as you may be mostly on latest browsers, press open link in a new tab and thats it you will see that photo is viewed in the new tab in classic mode. If you are at old browser then just choose open link in a new window.

3) Removing "&theater" from the link:

Here is another smart trick, open the photo by clicking on it and when the new viewer is loaded, Navigate to the browser address bar and here you will see "&theater" in the url of photo, remove it from there by selecting and hitting back space, after that hit enter and thus you will be in classic photo viewer again.
