    That's OK. They are both right.

    Re: the places of the adverbs.

    If so, they are also correct, is that right?

    Can you put right the photos?

    Can you
    bring back the photos?

    Will you
    get ready the tea?

    Can you put right the photos? Not common.

    Can you
    bring back the photos? Fine

    Will you
    get ready the tea? No.
    No, that's not a valid deduction. What's your argument? - that if you can separate one verb around it's object, you can do it with all verbs?
