I am using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016 and working on files with high mb's. To be specific, I am working on preparing a corridor for a railway alignment of 600 km in which I have to place contours, roads and every existing feature within the offset of 100 m.

What I want to know is, is it possible that when my drawing is completed in AutoCAD, I can bring it in to Photoshop or CoralDRAW so that while changing the plot scale I don't have to change the text size again and again?

    Yes you can do this, on the other hand you may want to consider using illustrator. On that note you can make autocad also do this without intervention. Besides a exported PDF allready has the same capability.

You can try to print your CAD project to tif or pdf and than open it in Photoshop.
