How to downgrade Windows store apps

Hi, Greetings to all

When I bought my Windows 8 laptop, I liked the Windows photos app which was default to view photos.

The main feature I liked in that was a slideshow feature which shows collection of pics in a single frame similar to this.
View attachment 42179

(for better understanding I attached image of win 8.1 lock screen slideshow)

Then I installed Windows 8.1 (i choose the option to keep old Windows settings, Apps) and I disabled auto update for store apps.

However after updating I found that photos app along with other system apps were updated to latest version and the feature which I loved was missing. When I press slideshow it just shows 1 image per frame.

So my question is how to downgrade my photos app to older version? Or how to install the old photos app in Windows 8.1
I have the files took from WindowsApps hidden folder.
