  • it depends on:

    • is it really necessary to use a image from that gallery
    • do you need to set a “special” Image
    • can it be the first image
    • a random one of the gallery
    • did it need to be failsave
    • how good are you at coding

    the most easy thing is for sure to have a additional Image field (not required) where user can select that image. (optional create a filter or savepost action to set WP featured image to that field)

    also easy would be to use the first image of the gallery when additional yes/no field after gallery is set to true.
    a little more difficult would be to get a random, or the last image of the gallery.

    possible but probably not failsave is to let user select or type the image countnumber. and use that if possible, else use first image.

    if you are good at coding:
    create a additional fieldtype that create a drop-down with image and filename out of the gallery (something that works like relationship but for gallery) probably done with js
