I have a very simple node set up as below for a leaf texture which is a transparent backgrounded png file. When I use the transparent shader with alpha node, I still get the white backround appearing as below, I can't figure out what's the problem here, please help.

Blender file

thanks a lot

Ps. I went through questions already asked here for this subject, they didn't solve my problem, even though it's a very simple node set-up - sorry if it's a duplicate which I haven't seen yet

Open up the Node Editor, select the image texture node, then open the Properties Panel N and enable Use Alpha.

enable alpha

I opened your file, everything is OK, even in render view. In your photo it seems that the leaf is projecting a shadow on an object just underneath; is there a duplicate? I hope it can be helpfulenter image description here
