I am trying to create png files using Microsoft paint and import them into my godot project, however every time I do it loads the image with a white rectangle around it. I don't know what I am doing wrong but it seems like there should be an easy fix.

Maybe post a screenshot so we can see what went wrong.

The white rectangle supposed to be the transparency color, but I think on paint doesn't work. Try to use another program, like Aseprite, GraphicsGale, etc.

Looks like Microsoft Paint did not produce a transparent image. It makes sense though, by default it's a white canvas (hence the white you see in Godot). You may want to erase all background if you want it to be transparent. I don't know how it's done (I don't use ms paint) but looks like there are ways https://www.wikihow.tech/Make-a-Background-Transparent-in-Paint

You could also try other programs such as Paint.NET, Gimp, Aseprite or Piskel.
