Transparancy not working in Blender 2.78

Before Solution:

If you have the problem that the texture won’t be transparent if you connect the alpha channel to the mix shader then you probably haven’t selected the use alpha option when importing an image

After Solution:


Thanks for the solution. This seems to do all of the nodes for you so how come it didnt work wen we manually set up the alpha channel with nodes?

I would also like to know why it doesn’t work with nodes with 2.78
For me the lesson worked properly, as shown in the video, when viewing in ‘Material’ but not ‘Solid’, ‘Rendered’ or ‘Texture’.

Blender 2.78c and having this issue too.
Works in material view, but not in Texture or Rendered, or when rendered.
