The results are sensitive to the complexity of the value group. We focus first in the case where the ordered abelian group has finite spines, and then prove a better result for the dp-minimal case. An ordered abelian with finite spines weakly eliminates imaginaries once we add sorts for the quotient groups Γ/Δ for each definable convex subgroup Δ, and sorts for the quotient groups Γ/Δ+ℓΓ where Δ is a definable convex subgroup and ℓ in ℕ_{≥ 2}. We refer to these sorts as the quotient sorts. We prove the following two theorems: Theorem: Let K be a valued field of equicharacteristic zero, residue field algebraically closed and value group with finite spines. Then K admits weak elimination of imaginaries once we add codes for all the definable O-submodules of K^n for each n in ℕ, and the quotient sorts for the value group. Theorem: Let K be a henselian valued field of equicharacteristic zero, residue field algebraically closed and dp-minimal value group. Then K eliminates imaginaries once we add codes for all the definable O-submodules of K^n for each n in ℕ, the quotient sorts for the value group and constants to distinguish representatives of the cosets of Δ+ℓΓ in Γ, where Δ is a convex definable subgroup and ℓ in ℕ_{≥ 2}.
