Creating masks using FSL and applying it
FSL has a very useful feature of creating and applying masks easily to large number of images. The first step is to create a mask.

Once the mask is created, one can easily apply it to the desired image using the following command
An important tip if you are making masks using FSLeyes. Don’t close your FSLeyes in which you are editing your mask until and unless you are completely satisfied with your mask results. If is much easier to edit your mask if the original file is still open.
