You’d be hard-pressed to find a Google+ user with any affinity for the service, but that’s not to say there aren’t elements of the social network experiment worth saving.

Bloomberg News first reported last year that Google might be planning to spin off its photo sharing and storage features from Google+, and now people familiar with the plans tell Bloomberg that the new service will be revealed soon.

According to the report, Google’s online photo service will be revealed at Google I/O in San Francisco at the end of the month. Details regarding the service are basically nonexistent, but the source says that it will allow users to share their images on Facebook and Twitter. If the new service functions anything like the old one, then users can expect unlimited uploads and the ability to apply effects to their photos straight from the service as well.

If Google does announce the service at Google I/O, you’ll hear about on BGR first, as we plan to be in attendance this year at the Moscone Center when the executives take the stage on May 28th.
