Recently Facebook rolled out a feature called Theatre Effect for it’s photos.
It has few advantages like, the user can easily come back to his previous page with pressing escape key. And of course it gives us some focus to photo with black background.
I personally don’t like this feature and I am comfortable with the old album design.
How to avoid this new feature and get back to old Facebook photo page?
You can follow any of the below mentioned tips to get rid of Theatre Effect.
1. Refresh browser - Click the photo you want to view. This shows the photo in Theatre Effect. Now click refresh button of your browser or press F5. This will take you the actual photo page with normal page.
2. Amend URL : Click the photo you want to view. From address bar, remove the word &theater from the URL and press enter. This will also take you to the actual photo in old style.
First two options works in all browser. Option one is relatively simpler if you don’t want to install any add-ons.
These tips are only to those who don’t like Theater Effect feature.
