Whenever you create a gallery, in the gallery settings (right side of the Edit Gallery screen), you have the option

Link to:

  • Link to attachment page
  • Link to media file
  • Nothing

Link to media file will open the image. Be advised that without some form of Lightbox plugin, the image will NOT open in an overlay/lightbox, but instead as a new document.

There are quite a few lightbox plugins available, or you could use Jetpack´s Carousel.
