Another way is to open the photo in a new window. Instead of left-clicking on photo, right-click and select ‘open in new tab’ or ‘open in new window’. This will open the picture in a new tab or window with the old classic layout. If on chrome browser you could also ‘ctrl+left-mouse-click’  to directly open the picture in a new window.
