Facebook had changed their photo viewing style quite a few days ago. Yeah it's true that this gives a huge relief for some members. But a part of this, to display pictures through this new viewer - it had to load a lot of Ajax which makes it slow sometime. And if you don't have unlimited bandwidth or if your Internet connection is slow than you might like to switch back to the previous photo viewer which will be handy for you. I think Facebook is going to disable this feature or at least side-by-side at the previous feature because of poor user of response. But yet you can switch to previous photo viewer by following some tricks. It's not so hard to be done. So let's get back and do it now.

Method 1 – Editing The URL

Have you seen that when you click on any image in my same that though opens the new photo viewer but it's URL always ends with &theater
For example here is the URL of a photo I have opened recently

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=235859136430935&set=a.157581940925322.38857.100000205521218&type=1&theater

If you remove the "&theater" from the address bar and then press enter, then the photo will be automatically opened in Facebook's classic photo viewer.

Method 2 – By Reloading The Photo

If you have opened a photo as easily in Facebook then you can easily switch back to the classic viewer simply by pressing F5 key or reloading the image via right clicking on it.
