Is there a way to use file transfers with HipChat through Adium?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Connecting to HipChat using Adium

If I am sent a file from the HipChat client, I do get a link to download the file. However, if I try and send a file from Adium, I get an error message:

Unable to send file to [address]/web||proxy|[proxy].hipchat.com|[num], user does not support file transfers.

HipChat doesn't support XMPP-based file transfers, unfortunately. If you regularly need to share files, I'd suggest using one of the native clients, which will include support for pasting, drag/drop, and image previews.
