Images with Transparent Backgrounds add a white background to It after Image tracing
When I take a image with a transparent background I expect after I expand it that there is no white background added to it and it remains transparent.
This is not what is happening, I get a white background when using image trace and it adds SO MUCH time and tedious work to remove all the white from very complex images.
For the cost of this program this is like a punishment, Im paying adobe to put me through **** in my own work. Not cool adobe, not cool....

I have the same problem. When I image trace a .png that has transparency, all the transparency is lost in the final product. If I press "ignore white" I still get a harsh outline and flat colors rather than the soft blurry translucent edges of the original .png
You can change your default image trace settings, by adding a custom script to it. Here is a link on how to do it: https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/batch-image-trace-with-transparent-background/td-p/11210899?page=1
If you want to batch convert bitmaps to vector with the advanced "ignore white", there is also very simple solution to do that Here's how:
Open Illustrator (2020). Create a preset in Illustrator for tracing (goto "Windows > Image Trace"). I made a preset and called it "BW-No-White". The preset is set to convert to black and ignore white (= ignore white backgrounds).
Then open "Adobe Bridge". Within Bridge, go to the folder where you have your bitmaps that you would like to batch convert to vectors. Within Bridge, Select "Tools>Illustrator>Image Trace". Select your preset (which you set up prior in Illustrator). Set you destination folder and click OK. That's it. No need to script anything!
