I have a transparent image that I created as a plane and I can't seem to get it to be transparent. I've saved the PNG with the color and alpha data and it still not transparent even with the nodes connected. I am using Blender 2.81 please help!
You have to change the Blend Mode in the material settings and have to be in Rendered View.
Any of Alpha Clip, Alpha Hashed or Alpha Blend would work for a single image, but for a pixel perfect preview in EEVEE, Alpha Blend is required.
Use alpha blending to overlay the surface color on top of the previous color.
